The new Free Transform in Adobe® Photoshop® 5.0 can give you a whole new perspective on life! Have you ever wanted to scale and move objects in a step and repeat pattern, as you do in Adobe® Illustrator®? Well, now you can. So let’s get rolling and discover the secrets of transformation in Photoshop 5.0.
Let’s say you need an imageof a typical business meeting.You have this image from theAdobe Image Library, but it justdoesn’t look like it’s going to bea very big meeting. Let’s imply that we’re anticipating a fewmore attendees by adding a fewmore note pads. How will wepull this off? We’ll duplicate thenotepads by scaling and movingthem with perfect perspective.And the one incredible featurewe’ll use to do it is the powerfulFree Transform in Photoshop.
Adobe Senior CreativeDirector Russell Brownreveals secrets of transfromation inPhotoshop 5.0.
Before we start, it’s impor-tant to note that this techniqueworks best on images with asequence of objects in per-spective. This technique willattempt to match and copy thesequence so that it createsmore objects with the correctperspective. Now, let’s beginby placing guides around thelast object in the sequence wewant to duplicate. (You’ll beusing guides in combinationwith the Free Transform.)Choose View > Snap to Guidesbefore you start.
 Throughout thisdocument, “Command/Ctrl” means Commandon the Macintosh andCtrl on Windows.“Option/Alt” meansOption on theMacintosh and Alton Windows.
 To create guides, click and drag from theruler at the edge of the image. Show rulersby choosing View >Show Rulers.

Turn off the Guides tempo-rarily by choosing View > HideGuides. Now, select the second-to-the-last object in thesequence you want to duplicate.In this case, I selected thesecond-to-the-last note pad andits shadow using the polygontool found under the lasso tool.(Click and hold the lasso tool toreveal the polygon tool.)
Next, while pressing theOption/Alt key, select FreeTransform from the Edit menu.The Option/Alt key willmodify the transformation andmake a copy of the selectioninstead of cutting it out of thebackground image. Thismodification is a very impor-tant step in this process.
Turn the Guides back on.Choose View > Show Guides.Move the object you aretransforming over the lastimage in the sequence andsnap it to one of the cornersformed by the guides.
You can move objectsthat are being trans-formed in one-pixelincrements by usingthe keyboard arrows.Using the Shift key incombination with thearrow keys will movethe object 10 pixels.
 The keyboard shortcutcombination for thisstep is: Option/Alt+Command/Ctrl+T.
