I have a jpg that I have opened in PS (which I did not create).  Is there a way to 1) unlock the picture so I can edit it or 2) is there a way to figure out what exactly the font is on the jpg?  

Thanks,
AD

Adrew1508,

The JPEG format is a flat format. There's no layers to be edited, as there are in, say, a Photoshop (PSD) file. You can only directly "paint" onto the image.

You can try cropping your photo down to just the text and submitting it at MyFonts.com's What The Font page (http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/), or put it on a server and post a link and we can help you out. If you do the second, you may want to post a Pointer question in the Fonts Topic Area of Experts Exchange.

Cheers,
LHerrou
