To move the center point for the transformation:

1 Select a transformation command, as described in the following topics. A bounding box appears in the image.

2 Drag the center point. The center point can be outside the item you want to transform. Applying transformations

The commands under the Transform submenu let you apply the following transformations to an item:

• Scaling enlarges or reduces an item relative to its reference point. You can scale horizontally, vertically, or both horizontally and vertically.

• Rotating turns an item around a reference point. By default, this point is at the center of the object; however, you can move it to another location.

• Skewing lets you slant an item vertically and horizontally.

• Distorting lets you stretch an item in all directions.

• Applying perspective lets you apply one-point perspective to an item.

In Photoshop, you can perform several commands in succession before applying the cumulative transformation. For example, you can choose Scale, drag a handle to scale, and then choose Distort, drag a handle to distort, and press Enter or Return to apply both transformations. In ImageReady, you can perform multiple types of transformations at the same time using the Transform > Numeric command.
