Photoshop :: How To Stop SKEW Transform From Snapping To Layer Edges

Oct 18, 2013

I have supposedly disabled all the "snap" features in Photoshop, however, whenever I try to make minute transforms with the skew tool it always "snaps" (often closing a huge gap) to either it's previous vector, or one of the other points.
How do I stop this before I hit my head on the desk repeatedly in frustration?
Ctrl, etc., like with the move tool, does nothing differently.

Illustrator :: Skew Object - Free Transform Not Sticking

Jul 30, 2013

I am trying to "skew" an object. I use the Free Transform tool, then click and hold on a handle, then hold down Control, and drag the handle where I want it. This works fine. BUT the second I let go of either the mouse or the Control button, it pops back to its original location/shape. How do I make the transformation "stick"? I'm sure I'm being really dense and missing something very simple.

Photoshop :: Unknown Snapping With Control And Transform Anchors

Aug 12, 2013

On CS6, Windows 7, when I have a transform box around a selected area and place the cursor on an anchor point and hold down the control key down, the anchor can be dragged about without moving any other anchor points... i.e. the box can be changed from a rectangle to whatever. 

However, in CS6, the movements snap to something even though I have all snaps turned off.  How to stop the unknown snapping?

Photoshop :: Stop Canvas From Snapping To Top Of Screen When Move Around

Mar 29, 2012

When I move a canvas around the screen, if I take it too near the top it will snap to the top of the screen and take up the whole page with just this one canvas. How do I stop it from doing this? I guess its in options somewhere but as I dont know what its called I dont know what to search for? Also how do I stop one canvas snapping into another/tabbing into another when moving them around?

Illustrator :: CC Free Transform And Snapping?

Sep 1, 2013

It seems that in CC the Free Transform tool does not snap to grid when resizing (for example) a rectangle. If I have "Snap to Grid" turned on, it only is taking effect with new objects getting drawn. Am I understanding this correctly? If I draw a rectangle, and want to reshape/resize it to fit the grid, how do I do this? It's a bit embarrassing asking this question, but CC seems to have changed some things from CS6.

GIMP :: Stop Snapping To The Guides?

Oct 1, 2013

I don't want my images to default to "snap to guides." I have guides up on most of my files because I use them for spacing my comic; I work from a template so I can have consistent sizing. But I only rarely ever want to snap to those guides.

Yes, I can turn off the snapping, but I have to do this EVERY F***ING TIME. Open a file I've been working on already? Gotta disable the snapping. Open a new file? Gotta disable the snapping. Restarting GIMP because it just crashed? Gotta disable the snapping. Every freaking time for each freaking image. Gimp won't save the setting to the file nor to my preferred settings.

How can I get GIMP to stop setting the guides to snap by default?

Illustrator :: Cannot Disable Snapping To Artboard Edges

Aug 2, 2012

I'm creating SVG icons, and due to the removal of SVG as an output format for Save for Web, I've switched to having a series of 16x16 artboards for my icons. Problem is, no matter what snapping features I disable, my artwork still snaps to the artboard edges when I move it around (regardless if I use the mouse or the arrow keys). This makes it impossible to align artwork to such a small artboard, and it also seems like pixel snapping shuts off, causing mis-aligned artwork.
Failed solution:
View menu >> Snap to Pixel disabledView menu >> Snap to Point disabledView menu >> Smart guide disabled Transform palette >> Align to Pixel Grid disabled 

Set Keyboard increment to 0.5px, which will round up to 1px in Pixel Mode. Keyboard nudging now behaves as expected, but mouse behavior is still erratic.Use the Free Transform tool. It behaves slighly less erratically than the Selection and Direct Selection tool.
Steps to reproduce:
Create a new document, 16x16 pxVerify that you're in pixel modeCreate a 14x14 px squareTry and position it in the center of the artboard using the mouse or keyboard incrementsObserve the artwork snapping to the edges of the documents, or bypassing snapping altogether.

Photoshop :: Liquify / Transform Tools Cause Jaggy Edges?

Aug 25, 2012

Left - Marquee Tool > Transform > Skew
Middle - Liquify filter with "use graphic processors" selected
Right - Liquify filter without (same result)
Image above is at 200% zoom

All Transform tools cause jaggy edge. I've only tried these tools and Liquify for the last month and a half.
Uninstalled, re-installed Windows, Photoshop, graphic card - Evga 560 ti - drivers (all versions). No prevail.
CS5 works flawlessly on this system. These tools also work fine on my laptop which use Radeon HD3470.

Photoshop :: Image Layer Edge Snapping Failure?

Feb 26, 2012

i open an image to photoshop cs5 and it opens as a background layer, right?now i drag n drop from windows exporer the same image over the cs5 on top opening as a new layer.It shows up an X over the image where you can reposition the second image (layer) over the first.
i don't want to reposition, its the same image, i want the pixels of the second layer to match EXACTLY the first layer.i press the TICK button or ENTER where the new layer gets the images name BUT when i zoom in 1600% or 3200% and move to the edge i see the edges of the new layer not positioned exactly over the 1st layer.
it positions the new layer 1 or 2 pixels to the right and some times 1 or 2 pixels to the bottom. it doesn't snap the edge.know i can fix it afterwards by align the layers from the layer -> align menu but its annoying, even creating an action..
is there a setting in the prefrences which i'm missing? is it a bug? if so, can this be fixed in CS6?

GIMP :: Transform A Layer Without Moving Its Layer Mask?

Dec 14, 2012

Long time gimp user, but for basic tasks only. Now I would like to get my hands dirty a little more. I'm trying to setup a workflow that involves CAD, Inkscape and GIMP. Basically I did some architectural drawing in CAD, used Inkscape to clean up and convert DXG into SVG, so that I can use paths into GIMP. I did a script that for every path creates a new transparent layer with a layer mask using the path, so I can add fills and textures quickly. Now to the problem: say I want to add a texture from another image, i paste the image into the appropriate layer, then I want to transform the texture a bit (scale, rotate and perspective). the result is that the layer mask is transformed, too. I tried to disable the mask during transform, but didn't work.

Is there a way to workaround this? maybe some layer mode instead of layer mask?

GIMP :: Transform Layer By Manipulating The Layer Itself

Feb 1, 2014

I would like to know if there is a way I can transform a layer by manipulating the layer itself.

For instance, I can select Layer-->Transform-->ArbitraryRotation, and then use the mouse directly on the layer, giving me a "realtime" vies of the rotation.

Is there any way to do this with something like the "Scale Layer" function, so I could transform a layer directly, while seeing in realtime the difference the scaling makes?

GIMP :: Make Edges Of Top Layer Blend In With Bottom Layer To Tell That There Is A Line

How do I make the edges of the top layer blend in with the bottom layer so you cannot tell that there is a line??? I want to make it look like a heart but I don't know how to smoothen the edges to make it look like it is part of the bottom layer so when I merge the layers there is no goofy lines looking like someone cropped another fire picture out...

Photoshop :: How To Transform A Mask On Shape Layer (CS6)

Aug 8, 2012

I've unlinked the layer mask from the shape layer, and made sure the layer mask thumbnail is selected in the layers palette.
If I do a cmd-t on OSX to transform, Photoshop (CS6) selects the shape layer path to transform instead of the mask layer, even though the mask thumbnail is still selected and even if I have a marque selection.Is this a bug?

Photoshop :: Transform Box - Cannot Click And Edit Layer

Jun 17, 2012

The problem I am having is that every single file I open looks like this. Once I click transform (which I have to) the layer no longer allows me to click and edit the layer. I like to re-size my images in relation to the multiple images I place on a document. My previous version of photoshop did not create a transform box with each new file. How can I adjust photoshop so that it doesn't do this. I am using CS5 on a PC.

Photoshop :: Cannot See Selection As Transform / Scale Layer?

Apr 28, 2013

I selected a layer in order to scale it. When I click the link between height and width and then change the percentage up or down the object I'm trying to scale simply disappears. I can see the edges and the transform tool 'handles' but the layer is not there. I've never had an issue in any other version of Photoshop. What the heck is going on?
Doesn't matter whether I use the percentage tool in the upper palette of Photoshop or just shift and drag to scale. The scaling object becomes invisible.

Photoshop :: Free Transform Duplicates Layer

Apr 6, 2007

I use Photoshop CS1.

Often, when I right click and select "Free Transform" and start editing my transformation, Photoshop decides to duplicate the layer. This leaves a layer beneath the layer that I am working on and if I am trying to position the transformation over a layer below that, obviously this is impossible, as the layer is hidden.

Photoshop :: How To Stop CS6 From Reverting To Previous Layer

Aug 7, 2013

I want to edit on a certain layer, for example layer 1: My current layer happens to be layer 2, so: I click on layer 1 to make it current. I do the editing & it isn't quite what I want, so I undo theaction. As I undo the action, CS6 also undoes my layer change (i.e makes tolayer 2 current again) even though I want layer 1 to remain the current one. Is there any way to change this in edit preferences or somewhere?

Photoshop :: How To Transform Layer Object And Path At Same Time

Nov 20, 2012

I would really like to know if there is any way I can manage to to transform both a layer object and a path at the same time....or if there is any workaround to achieve this.
In a nutshell, say for example I spend a VERY long time creating an intricate path around a very detailed object, and then at the very end notice just how crooked and out of perspective it is, and would like to straighten it.

Of course I could transform and correct the object, and then carefully transform the path - but it just won't be exact, and I will have to spend a long time adjusting the path and making SURE it is perfect.
Isn't there any way I could get to transform them together?
Usually of course I do all the correction to straighten and correct perspective beforehand, but in some instances after I am done creating the path I then notice that the image could have used further adjustments.

Photoshop :: Action Records Layer Transform In Percentage NOT Pixels?

Apr 11, 2012

I am trying to create an action that will work with some product images. Every image document I make is the same size (1000 x 1000px). The layer that I paste onto that document will always vary in size. I like my product images to all have the exact same margin. So I always use the transform command to specify that the width of any layer should be exactly 930px. This gives me exactly the same margin on my 1000 x 1000px document every time, regardless of the original layer size. I want to create an action for this to speed up the process but when I press record I hit a stumbling block.

In reality, I choose transform and set width to 930px.

Photoshop records me choosing transform then setting the width to 97% (or whatever).Percentages are useless to me as my original layers vary radically in size. I need to transform by pixels.why photoshop is recording my transform by percentage and not the pixels that I actually use?
