Often times when creating a tag
you will need to resize elements or tubes
to fit your creation.
You will first need to read the TOU
of the designer or artist to see if this is allowed.
Almost always, enlarging is a big no no.
You can reduce the size to fit your tag
but you cannot make it bigger.

Let's say you have a flower that is way too big for your tag.
You need to reduce its size.
With the flower layer highlighted in the Layer Palette,
Go up to your tool bar.
Look for the words:
Show Transform Controls
Check the little box next to it.
Now you'll see little squares around your flower in the work space.
In the center of that square is a tiny circle.
That marks the center of your flower.
I use that as a guide in resizing.

Left Click one of the squares or the circle.
Now you'll see your flower outlined in a square or rectangle.
Look up in your tool bar again.
You'll see its changed.
The X is the height in pixels.
The Y is the width.
These are the original dimensions of the flower.
Next to this, you'll see:
W 100%
H 100%
The 100% will be in a box.
These are what you will be changing.

Type in a different number where 100% is.
Make sure both the W and H numbers are the same.
This keeps the flower in proportion.
You may want to try different sizes
before deciding which size looks good.
I normally start with 75 and work down in numbers.
(You don't need to put the % sign in there.
It will do that automatically.)
When you get the size you want,
Hit Enter on your keyboard.

Now you'll need to click the arrow in your left tool bar.
(It should be the very top icon.)
A window will pop up.
There will be 3 options:
Don't Apply
Clicking Apply will lock in your changes.
Cancel will allow you to go back and make more changes.
Don't Apply will make the flower its original size.
If you like your changes,
Click Apply.

You just resized your flower!
Use these steps whenever you need to resize
elements or tubes.
Just make sure to check those TOUs first.

Hope this helps!

♥Tribute to Rieka♥

To honor Rieka and all she has blessed me with, I will be leaving all my tuts that I have written with her kits on my blog. They are not coming down. Even though her kits are no longer available, the tuts I wrote using them are my tribute to her. Hopefully, they will inspire you the way Rieka inspired me. Love You, Rieka! You'll be forever in my heart.♥
