Resizing a layer.


Recommended Posts

Hi Firelight.

 

Have you tried Layers>Rotate/Zoom? If the layer you want to resize is a different shape to the background it will not be possible.

 

What works best for me is to put the new background on a new layer, select the image & then use the move tool to drag it to the size required. It allows me the ratios to be seen easily & more easily adjusted. If the ratios are equal but the image is smaller or larger, hold the SHIFT key down while you drag.

An easier method might be:

  1. Press Ctrl + A to select all of the active layer.
  2. Press M to activate the Move tool :MoveTool:
  3. Hold down Shift and drag out any of the corners. The Shift key keeps the Height and Width ratio the same as the layer is resized.

This is very valuable information. Adding a "scale" option to the UI under "Layers" would be useful. thanks, Bill
