resizing selection seems to mess with resizing selected pixels(?)

Recommended Posts

So if I make a selection and then resize the pixels of this selection (using "move selected pixels") while holding shift, everything's fine.

If I make a selection, resize the selection (using "move selection") and try to resize the pixels of the resulting selection while holding shift, it resizes according to the original selection size.

Selection I want to resize the pixels of after resizing the actual selection (New size- 622x129. Original size- 622x380):


When not holding shift when resizing (from top right corner):


When holding shift when resizing (from top right corner):



I know it scales according to the previous size of the selection because I am able to scale it back to the original size of 622x380 while holding shift



If the root of my problem turns out to be "I'm just being stupid" because I've missed a setting or something somewhere then I apologise profusely but this doesn't seem like the kind of thing that'd be intentional to me.

Hello @Benzo7 and welcome to the forum :) 


Have you read over this, about ratio?

To use the Shift key maintaining the adjusted aspect ratio press:

Ctrl+Alt+Shift C
Ctrl+Alt+Shift V

Then resize with Shift key.

That does fix it


But I still don't know for sure whether or not what I described/pictured is a bug (or at least, like, an oversight or something) because it doesn't make much sense
