CS6 - Is it possible to rotate multiple objects independent of one another? In other words selecting say 9 object in a grid then rotating the all 30 degrees on their own axis.
Not that I know of. Since the transform bounding box is calculated dynamically based on the pixel content or selection there is no persistent pivot/ anchor point that would allow a "transform each" option similar to Illustrator. A workaround might be 3D layers and smart objects, but that doesn't realyl solve the underlying issue and at the time you have converted your layers, you could long have transformed them conventionally. If you use this often, you might investigate options based on scripts, though, or craft an action that may at least take some of the repetion out of the task.
Yes, I was afraid that was the case. I was hoping that with the advent of that option in Illustrator it would also make its way to photoshop and I was simply unable to find it.
well appreciate the answer
Is each object a separate layer? If yes, then target one and apply transform. Then for each other object, target it alone and do Shift+Cmd/Ctrl+T for "Edit > Transform > Again".
Are the objects in the array identical? If yes, then you can use an array of Smart Object instances instead. Open one SO, transform its content, save.and close. All SO will be instantly transformed.
Yes Individual layers, except ofcourse for the shift in position. Basically this route it is trading the time it takes to do them individually with the time it takes to correct my grid since I have to reposistion all the objects again.
appreciate the help again
I forgot Transform > Again won't rotate each layer about its own centre.
It can be done, though. Record an Action of a layer being rotated and followed by Opt+] or Alt+] to target next layer. It should look like the screenshot below. Use it by first running it on the lowest target layer in the stack then running however many more times is required.
