How to change the size of the image without changing the background


Recommended Posts

If the element you want to make smaller is on a top layer you just select all, copy and paste it into a new image on a second layer to keep the transparency. Reduce the image 10 percent or whatever. Select all, copy and paste to a new layer back to the first image. Then delete the layer you don't want.

Once you get the object that needs resizing on its own layer, select it and use the "move selected pixels" tool :MoveTool: to resize it (drag the nubs that appear around the selection when the move tool is selected)

I have the background and the image on different layers. I know, the manual resizing works, but it doenst keep the ratio and the picture is squashed in some way. Unless there is a way to fix it, in which case please tell me about it.
