Lock the transparent pixels. The lock icon is at the top of the layers panel.

Sabrina81, Always great knowledge and answers but assumes we know what we are doing.

Can you please spell it out "for an idiot". The more granular the steps the better.

And if you feel kind an explanation of when to use "lock transparent" and what it does would be great.

Yes, the other problem that I encountered is transparent pixels getting "pulled in", I didn't even mention it in the original post for fear of making it incomprehensible.
