Where are the resize handles for the selection tool?

    I've got Photoshop 6.0.

    Is there any way to resize a selection once you've drawn it? I don't
    see any "drag handles" or any indication of resizeability.

    thanks!

    Press and hold down the Control key whilst pressing the 'T' key.

  3. 1 Use the "transform selection" option from the selection menu.You can
    resize and rotate the selection. Play with the Shift, Alt and
    Ctrl-keys (Windows) when manipulating the selection to learn about its
    versatility.
    2 When creating a selection with the marquee tool, you can move it
    around as long as you keep the mouse button pressed by pressing the
    space bar simultaneously. This makes resizing superfluous in many
    cases.

    Yeah, just call up the contextual menu and select Transform Selection. You
    can also choose the command from the Select menu.

    Once the transform is active, you can modify the selection very precisely by
    entering units of measurement in the text fields in the Options bar.

    HTH.
