    Is there a more exact way to copy/paste a circle in photoshop.

    As I do it now I use the `elliptical marque tool` and it seems to be a bit
    of pot luck to get it exact, I am trying to copy the label of a vinyl record
    which is circular.
    Sometimes it is not exact but cant see how to adjust it to the correct size.
    If I use the transorm tool this just seems to move the circle around without
    allowing me to adjust to the correct size of the circle.

    thanks

    Thanks for the help I will try all options and see what suits, my main
    problem is finding something fast as I have over 2000 vinyl records to
    photograph and then edit, if it was just a few it would be ok. I must admit
    though my accuracy was getting a lot better just using elliptical tool until
    I got a bit fed up with it.

    thanks

    Thanks John that maybe the answer to do the bulk of the batch, and some of
    the more expensive items I can give a bit more personal attention.

    thanks

    I've made a vinyl disc image also with a nice B/W Gradient.
    What you could do is Alt+Shift-drag an Ellipse outwards from the center
    then just Cut/Paste into a new Layer. This will make it perfectly
    centered. Drag out your Grad to fill it.

    Next, Alt+Shift-drag a smaller Ellipse for the center hole on the top
    Layer, Cut/Paste and fill with black.

    Do the same for the label Layer, which is between the two Layers you
    just made and bring in your label image.
