how can i grab hold of the image i am working on

Recommended Posts

1) Zoom in and use the Pan tool. :PanTool:

2) Or, select it and use the Move Selected Pixels tool. :MoveTool:

Depending on what you mean by your question.

1) The Help says:



Using this tool you can scroll, or pan through the image. This functionality is also usable from any other tool at any time: simply hold down the spacebar and then click and drag with the mouse.


I tried that, but image doesn't move.

I dont want the image to be bigger

I just want to move it to the right.


When i select All, and leftMouseDown and Drag "the Move Selected Pixels too"

the only thing that moves is a thin black wire frame of the image.

Need help!

Thanks.. vmars

From the Tool menu select the top left tool (rectangle select or you could use ellipse select).

Hold down the the left mouse button & select the part of the image you want to move. Be sure you are on the layer that you want to move the image on.

Once you have the selection made, use the top right tool (move selected pixels).

You can then move it by holding down the left mouse button. If you want to turn the image, use the right mouse button.

Sounds to me like you have either selected the move selection which allows you to move the frame rather than the pixels instead of move pixels or you are on a different layer to the one you want to move.

Please let me know how you go with it.
