I need to make composites of 2-3 images and create a new image. Let's say product shot 1 is a table, 2 is the table legs, 3 is the hardware. I need to make a new image of all of these components in one image, as well as keep the originals.These individual shots all have vector paths, and all need to be scaled about 50% to make them all fit on the same size canvas. I can transform the images, and I can transform the path, but these are separate operations. Is there a way to transform the object with the path "linked"? I've converted my object to a smart object, tried converting the path to a selection, moving and scaling, then converting back to vector path but I lose so much integrity of the path that it's not an option.

If the object is in a layer, apply the transformation in the object or in the path, this is indifferent, and then select the path or the object and press Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + T and exactly the same transformation will be applied to the next object/path
This applies for any kind of transformation: scale, move, rotate, skew, etc. If you need to just move an object, instead of moving it with the Move Tool, do it with a transformation frame and then apply the transform again shortcut to the other object/path.
