I am currently updating an old document that I don't recall how I created the first time around. What I would like to do is to take the size and position of an existing object that underwent a free transform when it was placed in the document originally, and perform the same transformation on the new object I am now adding to the document. I am replacing the old one and I want the new one to be identical in size and position to the original. How can I do this in Photoshop CS5?
I'll suggest...manually =)
- Enable move tool
- Enable "Show transform controls" (it should show bounding box of objects on layer, layer should be unlocked. If not showing - enable free transform)
- Enable snapping and show guides and rulers
- Drag new guides until snapped to bounding box of object (and center if needed)
- free transform new object using created guides
