Resizing layers

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Caspar Schieweck, Jan 20, 2004.

  1. I am trying to resize layers on a canvas. Is this at all possible? I have a
    new image and I pasted another image to that canvas, it was too big when I
    pasted it but I can't seem to resize it. I can resixe the original image
    before pasting it to the new window but that is a pain and also reduces
    quality. Isn't there a way to drag and resize the individual layers while in
    the canvas?

    Please advise.

    Cash :)

    I use the scale function after pasting something, works in a pinch bu
    not all that great if you're trying to do something down the pixel
    Otherwise I do it the other way before pasting. It wont change th
    quality any differently than if you were able to resize within th
    layer

    yes. use the free transform tool...select the layer in the layers palette
    and then push ctr+T to use free transform...pick a corner and drag to
    resize...holding down shift will of course constrain the proportions for
    you, holding alt will resize keeping the center in position, ctrl dragging
    will skew the corner...good luck
