How to resize image after pasting into a transparent layer

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new with Affinity and i am trying to apply my day to day activities that i do with photoshop into Affinity. So, let's say i create a new document or image with the right dimensions for an image that i want to paste into it, right ? So, i open my original image, i select it all and copy it and paste it into this new image. Question: How do i resize the image after i paste it into the new document/image ? Thanks for your help,

Use the "File -> Place ..." menu command instead, which allows you to scale an image or insert it in it's original size. - Other than that when you paste in an image, you can also select it (it's layer) and resize it via the mouse or transform panel.

Hi gerfoto,

 

Welcome to the forum.

 

You can simply choose the Move Tool(V) (after you placed/pasted the image) and resize it using the handles or the transform values in the bottom right corner.
