Transform commands

As you can see in the Edit menu, there are two main Transform items, “Free Transform,” which applies to a selected layer, and “Transform” with a submenu of options, all of which apply to individually selected items.

Before you can transform a layer or part of an image, you must make a selection with one of the selection tools. To select a layer, single-click on it in the Layers panel (details on working with layers are in Chapter 5).

Commit or Cancel transform tasks

  • To commit the transformation, hit the Enter key,

    or double-click inside the bounding box,

    or click the Commit checkmark icon in the Options bar. checkmarks-a.jpg

  • To cancel, hit the Esc key,

    or single-click the Cancel icon in the Options bar. cancel-icon.jpg

  • To get rid of the selection marquee, click anywhere,

    or press Command D (PC: Control D),

    or go to the Select menu and choose “Deselect.”
