Lightbulb Change size of Image

Help! I am trying to cut and paste one jpeg file into another. How do I do that? Part of what I want to do is make the first image (the one I'm going to paste) tinier. When I try to do that using the change image/canvas feature, it looks smaller on the screen but then when I go to put it in my main image it's its orginal size. Any help is appreciated!

Lightbulb Re:Change size of Image

Copy the part of the image you want using any method you are used to, ie CTRL+C, Edit menu Copy, Edit Menu Copy Merged if your image spans a number of layers, a selection tool to choose an area, then copy, you know what I mean :-)

Once done, select your target image and paste copy into a new layer (CTRL+L, or Paste>New Layer.

Once its in, use the DEFORM TOOL and drag from one of the corners whilst holding the SHIFT Key to keep the proportions.

Resize away - try not to make it smaller then decide you want it larger though, do it the other way round!

Patricia,

Paste the second image as a new layer, and use the deform tool to adjust its size to what you want.
