Photoshop does not resize selection when area is selected with marquee tool!
on Jun 21, 2012 at 3:08:04 pm

Whenever I select an area with the marquee tool or another tool for that matter, the following occurs.

I select an area with the marquee tool, it continues to allow me to resize the marquee tool, but it never resizes the selected area.

I select the area, then right click and select Transform Selection, which allows me to see the boxes on the corners to be able to drag the window to the selected size.

However, it only resizes the size of the marquee tool box, not my selection! HELP!

Best Regards,

Transform Selection does just that: transforms your selection boundaries, not the contents of your selection. To transform the actual pixels in a selection area, make your marquee selection, then choose Edit>Free Transform (control/command-T). Then you'll be able to scale, stretch, rotate, etc. the actual pixels.
