Transform

Uniform

Uniform Transform swiftly moves, scales, and rotates your layer while perfectly preserving your original image proportions.

Move

After activating Transform, touch and drag one finger to move the layer or selection.

Touch and drag anywhere on the canvas - inside or outside the bounding box - to move your content.

Magnetics

Drag your image in a perfectly straight line horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.

Tap the Magnetics button in the Transform toolbar to toggle it on and off.

When Magnetics is active you’ll see guidelines popping up as your content snaps from one useful position to another.

Pro Tip

Tap anywhere outside the bounding box to nudge your selection in that direction in tiny increments.

Uniform Transform

Uniform mode offers two different ways to transform an object while preserving its original proportions.

Quick Scale (transform from middle)

Pinch inside the bounding box to uniformly scale your content.

The image is anchored at the exact middle of the bounding box, and will shrink or grow from that center point.

Nodes (transform from corners or sides)

Drag any corner or side node of the bounding box to uniformly scale your content.

The image is anchored at the opposite node, and will shrink or grow from that point.
