File TypeMany different 'flavors' of image file exist. They are distinguished by the file extension e.g. TIF and by the description seen in explorer view e.g. Tagged Image Format (for TIF)
File SizeThe size of a file expressed in bytes or in pixels (e.g. 6Mb or 4256 x 2848).
FeatherFeathering is the process of blurring edges around a selection. Blurring the edges helps the selection blend into another object, file, or selection when it is moved, cut, copied, and/or pasted.
FadeThe Fade command appears in the Edit menu after a filter has been applied and allows you to change the blending options for that filter.
