Can't Unlock a PSD (from iPad) layer

An artist friend paints for me.

 

  1. I send him a PSD file, already set up to paint in (correct dimensions, multi layered etc).
  2. He does the painting in ProCreate, maybe locks some of the layers, saves as PSD, and sends to me.
  3. I open in PS, but can't unlock the layers he's locked. I can delete them, but not unlock.

 

Attached is a sample file with the Crop 2 layer unlockable. I'm using CS6.

I've unlocked that layer using that button: This is CC2021, I can't remember if it's the same in CS6

Thanks for the answer. Didn't realize you could just lock the pixels in a layer via the paintbrush icon.
