How to make a layer change size in an animation in Photoshop?
I'm working with animation timeline in Photoshop CS6. I would like to have a small circle layer expand / increase in size, but on the
Layer-Timeline panel, these are the only options available:
- Vector Mask Position
- Vector Mask Enable
How can I make a layer increase in size during my animation?
I don't think this is possible with the
Timeline panel in Photoshop. I think the closest you can get is to use the
Keyframe animation panel instead and manually scale the object in a duplicate layer(s).
You may also want to look into using After Effects. After Effects will allow you to import your Photoshop layers into the composition. Then you can scale your object to your heart's content.

Starting from version CS6 you can animate the size of layers in photoshop. Just convert the layer to smart object, and position property will change to transform.
