CS4 Select>Modify>Contract fails after select All.

Hi All, I just noticed that I cannot contract a selection created by "select all" (whole image). Does anyone have a workaround or solution.

I use this in a script to place a watermark in my images. It allows me to align my watermark a defined number of pixels from the right and bottom edge of the image. It worked great in CS3, but not CS4.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

With Thanks.

You can use "Transform Selection" and then make changes to the values for scale, angle etc.
I think this could be incorporated into a script??

It works in my PS CS4! But not on the whole image only what is selected.

As far as I know, "Select"-"Modify"-"Contract" is just the same as using "Filter"-"Other"-"Minimum"/"Maximum" in Quick Mask mode (depends on your settings).
By selecting all you don't have anything white to expand and so you can not contract the selection.
