Chapter 6.  Changing a Selection  > Transforming a Selection

Transforming a Selection

Photoshop offers a number of transformations you can make to affect a selection in an image. Table 6-1 reviews the types of transformations you can make.

Table Table 6-1. Selection Transformations
Transform Enables you to…
Scale Change the size of the selection while maintaining its vertical-to-horizontal proportions.
Rotate Change the angle positioning of the selection, such as rotating it 90 degrees in a clockwise direction.
Skew Drag one side of the selection to “angle” the selection, such as changing a square selection to a slanted square (rhombus).
Distort Drag the corner handle bounding the selection to “stretch” the selection in multiple directions at once.
Perspective Simultaneously resize opposite (parallel) boundaries of the selection to achieve one-point perspective.
Flip Flip the selection horizontally or vertically.
