So I've clipped an image with a shape. (Don't know for sure if it's called 'clipping'). I'm not able to select the image anymore. For example, I like to enlarge and rotate the image. How can I do this? See screenshot attached.

Currently, when I select the image, the image AND clipping shape are selected.

Try to click on the layer thumbnail image only, in order to select just that one. - When in trouble click and drag it out of that position move it above and left, apply your changes and then re-clip the layer.

Yes, that's my way to go now. But hope there's a quicker way doing it.

Hello wvanderzee, just left click once on the thumbnail image of the clipping layer to select it.

I can select the image, but if I want to transform it (e.g. rotate), the clipping path transforms also. Is it possible to transform the image only whilst it is clipped?

Make sure the image that is being clipped is selected in the layers panel, (there will be a thin white border around it’s thumbnail denoting this), now look at the Context Toolbar at the top of the window and tick ‘Lock Children’. (if the Context Toolbar isn’t visible go to View > Show Context Toolbar to activate it)
With this selected the image and the clipping mask can both be moved, rotated, etc… independently.
