As entitled (Frame tool option (K), 6th down in lefthand menu, below Crop tool). I clearly see how to size a frame by dragging, but how can i set the dimension values of a frame by typing them in?

(I'm using v21.2.2.)

  • What frame? For what? Do you mean a rectangle? A selection? There's no "frame" tool anywhere that I know of. Has Adobe added one recently?

  • Hi. Welcome to GDSE. What is "a frame object"? There is nothing called that in Photoshop. Please edit your question and supply the missing information. Thanks.

    It seems to be a new tool. There's a tutorial here on youtube - looks like you can adjust it by typing the numbers in the properties panel.

    Interesting. Appears to be wasted development. Another "feature" that is really so users don't have to learn anything in-depth. Looks simply like a layer mask, either linked or unlinked (double-clicking).

The Frame tool is a new tool introduced in CC 2019. I haven't updated my copy yet so I haven't really had the chance to test it yet.

Anyway, from a tutorial visible on youtube here, it looks like you can adjust the dimensions by typing values in the Properties Panel.

CTRL+T to Transform your layer, then you have the length and width on the top control bar.
