Can some one tell me what the difference is between a fill layer and a pixel layer, if there is a difference?

The one difference that I know of is that when a fill layer is used you can continue to edit a gradient but on a pixel layer you can't.

Hi Optikz,


A Fill layer is a layer you can fill with a solid colour or gradient and then mask or apply adjustments to but you can't draw on one. A Pixel layer can be filled with a solid colour or gradient using the Flood Fill and Gradient tools but you can also draw directly onto a Pixel layer.
