When trying to make certain things slightly transparent, I know there is a big arguement over altering the Fill versus Opacity in the layer settings.

Any tips on when or why one is better than adjusting the other?

opacity is the opacity of that layer, fill is the opacity of that layer and any effect etc attached to or relying on that layer.

ie, stick a drop shadow on a layer, reduce opacity and all of it gets less opaque, reduce fill and just the layer gets less opaque and the drop shadow is still seen.
