Im trying to follow this tutorial here


And it says

Compress this layer to a very thins strip

What does that mean and how do I do it?

1 Answer 1


In this case, "compressing the layer" means to ignore the aspect ratio and make it thinner, but not narrower.

Select the layer, hit Ctrl+T and drag using the mouse.
