Objects are independent image elements that can be layered on top of one another. You can transform objects, change their edges, add drop shadows, and adjust their transparency. Objects can be changed without affecting the other objects, or the background, in an image.
In this section you’ll learn about
• transforming objects
• changing the edges of objects
• adding drop shadows to objects
You can change the appearance of objects using the following transformations.
Sizing : Lets you change the width and height of an object
Scaling : Lets you size an object to a percentage of its original size
Rotating : Lets you turn an object around its center of rotation
Flipping : Lets you create a horizontal or vertical mirror image of an object
Skewing : Lets you slant an object to one side
Distorting : Lets you stretch an object disproportionately
Applying perspective :Lets you give an object the appearance of depth
You can apply freeform transformations in the image window or manually adjust settings for more precise results.
You can apply transformations to a single object or multiple objects simultaneously.
Sizing and scaling
The photo object is scaled down to fit onto the background image.
The object is flipped to create a reflection.
The reflection is rotated
