Are you trying to scale the image to the document, or adjust the document to be the size of the image?

Image to Document

When you're transforming the image, grab one of the corners. Hold ALT + SHIFT while you're dragging to scale proportionally from the middle of the image.

Document to Image

The fastest way (that I know of) is to copy the image, open a new document, and under presets there's an option for "Clipboard". Then paste your image into the new document.


Open photoshop -> Create a new document. Then open the folder in which your images are placed for example in D drive. Then drag and drop the image from the folder into the psd document. This will automatically resize your image according to the canvas size.
