Resizing a layer
Hi,
Can someone explain how I can resize a layer? At the moment I'm deleting and recreating if I want to resize...


Regards,
David

RE: Resizing a layer
Depending if you want to change the size of the contents... If so check Rich's post.

Otherwise (to add or reduce margins around contents) you can:

In the general case:
- Layer>Layer boundary size

To reduce:
-- Crop tool with "Current layer only".
-- Layer>Crop to selection
-- Layer>Autocrop layer (removes all margins)

To enlarge:
-- Layer>Layer to image size (sets the layer to fill the canvas)
