Lesson 4. Working with Selections > Rotating a selection

Rotating a selection

So far, you’ve moved selected images and inverted the color of a selected area. But there are many more things that you can do with a selection. In the following steps, you’ll see how easy it is to rotate a selected object.

Before you begin, make sure that the fountain pen is selected.

1.
Choose View > Fit on Screen to resize the image window to fit on your screen.

2.
Hold down Ctrl (Windows) or Command (Mac OS), and drag the fountain-pen selection to the area just below and off-center to the left of the book.

3.
Choose Edit > Transform > Rotate. The pen and selection marquee are enclosed in a bounding box and the pointer appears as a curved double-headed arrow ().

4.
Move the pointer outside the bounding box and drag to rotate the pen to a jaunty angle. Then, press Enter (Windows) or Return (Mac OS) to commit the transformation changes.

5.
If necessary, select the Move tool () and drag to change the position of the pen. When you’re satisfied with the pen position, choose Select > Deselect.

6.
Choose File > Save.
