Transforming a selection

Greetings,
I am working on a Panoramic Photoshop Tutorial where he transforms a selection. It only transforms the marching ants around the selection, not what is in the selection. Can this be done with HPPE 3?

'he' who? You mean me? If you do, what 'panoramic' tutorial? I have one of those in a book I am writing, but you can't possibly see that from where you are!

Please let me know.

Transform a selection

Richard,
Sorry I wasn't clear, I'm a little new at this forum business. Anyway, it is a tutorial from the NAPP newswire email for Sept 6 byMatt Kloskowski. It is a video clip titled Creative Panoramas. He makes a selection then transforms the selection, but not the selected pixels inside the selection. I hope this is somewhat clearer. Is it possible to do this in PSE 3 with HPPE 3?

hmm, not sure i completely understand...but let me take a stab at this.

In the tut, he makes a selection, lets say the center of the pic, then proceeds to transform the selection, the the center of the pic stays the same and he transforms whats around it?

If that is the case...make your selection "select>inverse" and that will reverse the selection, such that your original selection is actually a subtraction.

Hope that helps

No, not close.
Making the selection with the marque tool for example then with the marching ants active click on the "transform selection" (remember this is in Photoshop). The handles appear. You grab a handle and rotate the marching ants only. the pixels inside do not rotate. You can then add effects such as a drop shadow where the selection ended up.

I attached a picture so you can see what I mean.

To do this:

1. create a new layer.
2. fill with white.
3. change opacity to 0%.
4. transform.
5. delete the layer created in step 1.

You need to do transformation on a layer with content. It doesn't matter that you won't be able to see the content ;-). At one time I did create a tool for this, but there are only a few steps...and I don't believe I ever included it in a set.

That do it?

Sorry I'm so slow in responding. Yes, that did it. It really is so simple I wonder why it took me so long to catch on. Thank you.

It is all simple once you know the answer...Please feel free to continue to ask such questions -- if you have them, other people do too!
