scaling two images that I wish to match up.
set uppet to 50% opacity, edit>transform, move gunsight to where I have matched the photos so as to keep that area matched.
despite moving the gunsight icon that appears in middle of transform box to where I want the scaling to happen from, it doesnt act as the origin of the scaling. I lose my already matched part of the image.
I thought this icon could be used as scaling origin, apart from rotation origin.
How does one scale a layer from a specific origin ?
Better still, to be able to select points on one image and then their target locations on another underneath and have pshop rubber distort for best match !
That would be fantastic, so useful and a fundamental image manipulation tool. Afetr all these years of development these two requirements need to exist.
You have to hold the "alt" key while scaling to use the origin point.
Alt key is the secret !
Now is it possible to select e.g. 4 points on the upper layer then 4 destination points on the lower layer and have pshop to marry the upper to the lower ?
Saves all the rotating and scaling to get best fit. especially where image fills the file and the transform corner boxes are inaccessible.
