Images are open on the background locked. If you want to unlock it, you will need to convert your background and make it a layer. Just double-click on the background layer under the layers palette. Or just simply click on Layer in the menu and then click New and Layer from Background.

Hello,

Please follow these instructions:
>>View your layers by clicking ‘window’ and then select ‘layers’.

>>Check which layer is locked? Locked document will have a lock icon.

>>Click on the layer to select and it will be highlighted in a dark color.

>>Now, click on the lock icon at the bottom with the locked layer still selected.

>> The lock in the layer will now be disappeared.

Please note that the background layer is automatically locked in Photoshop. It cannot be unlocked with a simple click. Double click layer and you will the dialogue box.
