    Re: Using Transform Selection Tool

    no confusion, I think. The threads show up in 'new' searches without categories, so this sort of thing happens pretty frequently. Y'all are trying to help out, and that's the idea of community!

    Re: Using Transform Selection Tool

    The transform Selection tool is used to transform the selection itself separate from the image area. If you want to transform the image area, use the Transform function that Elements already has (Edit>Transform). The tools I provide add functionality to Elements -- it would be no use duplicating what is already there.

    OK?

    PS -- Swampy & Olbaldy, the Hidden Power tools are often similar to Photoshop tools except that they are made for Elements, and some of the functionality may be somewhat different (e.g., right-click may not work). It may be tough to accurately answer questions about these tools without being familiar with them.

    Tony, I don't use PSE, but in Photoshop you make a selection then use transform to rotate, reduce, enlarge etc. When done you type ENTER or RETURN to "set" the transformation. Don't know if it works the same in PSE thought.

    Using Transform Selection Tool

    I'm sorry if this is a stupid question. What is the transform selection tool supposed to do? When I try to use it I do the following (PSE6 with PSE6 tools).
    1) Load image
    2) Make a selection
    3) Click on the transform select icon in the Effects menu
    4) Rotate, resize or whatever
    The selection marching ants change to reflect the action performed.
    5) When I click on the tick the selection marching ants stay where they were put.

    Is that it? I kind of thought that the contents of the selection would be transformed rather than the selection itself. Like I said probably a stupid question...

    Selection Tool
    by T Paul
    You can use the selection tool to make copies of your selection quickly and easily. My standard practice for copying a selection is to select it then copy (Ctrl+C), paste (Ctrl+V). However, I just learned a neat little trick today.

    1. Open an image
    2. Pick a selection tool...

    transforming selection
    by trvlnmn
    I am running PSE 3 with HPPE 3. I am trying to follow a tutorial in Photoshop.
    Is there a tool in HPPE to transform or rotate a selection without transforming or rotating the image within the selection, just the selection?

    Selection Brush in Paintshop?
    by kapital
    I am trying Paintshop pro X and CS2 right now, and I can't find the kind of selection brush that Photoshop Elements has. All I see is the lasso tool and the magic wand. Am I missing something? (I know that there is also that magic selection thing, but that's not the straightforward selection brush I...
