Scale layer in Photoshop without changing aspect ratio?


Question

I need to scale a layer, make it smaller. But when I try to scale it down with Edit > Transform > Scale, it's a type of scaling that can change the aspect ratio.

I'm looking for a scale feature that forces the aspect ratio of the layer to be maintained while shrinking or enlarging it.

Accepted Answer

The link button in-between the width and height boxes will maintain the aspect ratio.

You can also hold SHIFT while dragging the transform handles.

As always, the information is in the Photoshop help documentation:
