    Do you mean that you are in the following situation:

    - you have brought a picture from the picture bin over your image in the work space

    - the new image is then on its own layer, but as it is much bigger than the background, you can't see the bounding rectangle to resize the new layer ?

     

    In such a situation, I have set the preference to zoom the image with the center wheel of the mouse.

    When the picture is on its new layer, I use the /transform/ command (shortcut Ctrl T) and use the wheel to zoom the picture in the workspace so that I can see the whole bounding rectangle outside the main image. Then I can select an angle of the bounding rectangle and move it towards the center to resize without distorting. You can then zoom back and make finer size and position adjustments.

    Are you talking about the out of bounds guided edit? Just click this button and then drag in the photo:
