Resizing Layers

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Smirnoff Eyes, Aug 31, 2006.

  1. Hi I'm new to Photoshop CS2 so appologise for what is probably a remedial
    question, my problem is when I am working with 2 or more layers I cannot for
    the life of me find out how to resize the active layer without messing up
    the whole image and don't want to have to drop back into PSP to sort it as I
    am enjoying PS.

    Can you provide more info? What exactly is happening? What do you mean
    "messing up the whole image?"

  3. You don't resize the layer, you resize the content. Choose 'Select all',
    then choose 'Edit - Transform - Scale'.

    Click on the layer you want to resize, hit Ctrl-T, drag the handles to
    (hold down Shift to constrain proportions, Alt to resize from the middle)
    Did you select more than one layer?
