Resize shape outline to proportionally fit inside original

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm having trouble overcoming what on the surface should be simple.

I have a borderline of an arrow shape and would like to create a smaller duplicate to fit inside it.

I have hit a brick wall. I have used all obvious methods including holding the shift button for supposedly proportionate resizing but I must be missing something because I cant get the resized borderline triangular arrow to fit inside the original.

Any help appreciated or suggestions as to another method as to how this maybe accomplished. 

Cheers

Because of your shape, you wont be able to fit it inside by just resizing. I think that you will need to draw your shape on a new layer.  Use the lines tool to do this.

What you are attempting is easier to accomplished with a vector app such as Inkscape or with the vector plugin for Paint.NET called ShapeMaker.

Delete the white inside the arrow head.  Then use outline object to create layers of color in there as desired.
