Photoshop cc - how do i resize a box and keep the radius the same?
I know there are several questions that ask this - so far the answer has been "impossible", but in one of them there was an allusion (or... illusion?) to being able to do so in the cc edition.
I have the cc edition, if only on a trial basis.
I have a shape selected - it is a white "rectangle", with a drop box and so forth. Rectangle is in quotes, because to me it is a rectangle, but I do not know how the rectangle was created.
As seen here:
I want to resize this (which was harder than it needed to be - i had to go to edit - free transform.
But when i drag the image, the rounded corners go bonkers! I read in this answer - see the comments that it should be possible to edit the corners now.
But i do not know what to press... in the pictures i found on youtube, it looked like when i opened "properties" i should be able to see the transform options.
How do i make this simple image bigger and with a rounded corner?
I don't know why your Properties options don't have the radius section. I think Emily is on the right track, in stating that your "shape" may in fact just be a layer mask on a filled layer. My Properties option box has a separate "Shape" section in it (see below).
I would just create an actual shape and scrap what you have there with that mask, but if you do insist on using what you already have, the best way that I can see to resize it and still maintain your radii would be by moving the points on either side of each radius. I have to disagree with Emily here, I ALWAYS avoid rasterizing - at all costs.
Direct Selection Tool for this, as pictured below:
Select this group of
Anchor Points to adjust the rectangle's size horizontally. Hold down the SHIFT key, to drag the points in a straight line.
vice-versa for vertically
Like I said, I always try to avoid rasterizing and instead prefer to work with shapes, smart objects, and layer masks. This keeps everything scalable and is also a non-destructive way of working.
