I am a Fireworks user new to Photoshop. In FW there is the very handy "fit to canvas" button in the properties panel at the bottom which when clicked snaps the image to the canvas by adjusting the canvas's size to be no larger than the image.

Is there such a tool in PS?

The closest you'll get is the Trim… command in the Image menu.

If the content is bigger than the canvas it's not working as Fireworks 'Fit to canvas' tool. Only when the content is smaller than the canvas it works fine. –  Aw Qirui Guo Sep 29 '13 at 7:43
    
@AwQiruiGuo As I said, it's the closest you'll get. If it's something you need to do often, it's relatively straightforward to make a photoshop action to change the canvas size to something arbitrarily large so that the content is surrounded by blank space, then use the trim command. –  ghoppe Sep 30 '13 at 15:09

  • use rectangular select (M) over the whole image
  • copy the image (Ctrl/Option+C)
  • File > New...
  • on Preset click Clipboard
  • then paste it there (Ctrl/Option+V)

You could always simply crop close to the edges of your content. Zoom in to be more precise.
