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


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

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


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

Tap the Magnetics button in Modify > Transform > Settings 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 increments.

Uniform Transform

Uniform mode transforms an object while preserving its original proportions.

Drag any corner or side node of the bounding box to uniformly scale your content from the opposite node. Your object will shrink or grow from that point.

Tap and hold a node to scale from the centre of an object, then drag to your desired size.
