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.
