Resize a layer?

Recommended Posts

I am sure I am missing something simple. I have a background and I want to insert an image over the background. After copying the image and pasting it as a new layer on the background I need to adjust the size while maintaining the aspect ratio. (The image is in an oval, so draging it to be smaller or larger distorts the image) Think of it as a background of a forest. I cut a person from another picture using the magic wand I want to place it in the forest and adjust the size to look appropriate.

Is there a simple way to do this? Thanks in advance for any help - I am a newbie to Paint.Net, but the program is awesome!

You can also use the Zoom function of the Rotate/Zoom Tool (Ctrl+Shift+Z). That will allow more precise control, as well as allowing you to use the exact same function on multiple layers (select your zoom level, hit ok, then select the next layer, hit Ctrl+Shift+Z again, and then hit okay without changing the selections).


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
