Zoom in?

Recommended Posts

It's me again, and I'm trying to animate yet another effect. What I need is simple; I want to make an object bigger. I have been unsuccessful in doing so (I can't use resize because the object is on another LAYER, rather than another picture). I tried using blurs and making them completely opaque, but the object becomes rounded rather than square (which is what I want, because the object I'm trying to resize is a square). Is there any way to resize a selection on a layer? If not, I feel a "Zoom in" plugin would work... or something.

You can accomplish this using the Move Selected Pixels (:MoveTool:) tool. Click on one of the nubs of the selection and drag to resize. You can hold [shift] to constrain the proportions.

Also, there's Layers -> Rotate / Zoom... which has a zoom function.

Cheers!

Use :MoveTool: And click the nobs on the corners and drag it.

Hold shift to keep aspect ratio

EDIT: LOL the slowest mod on the forum TT_TT :? :?

Now, I'll give the real answer:

It is always best to place something that you want resized into its own image in order to resize it.

This is because when using Image > Resize, you have control over the resampling method.
