Transform controls grayed out in Photoshop CS 6
« on: March 15, 2013, 02:30:40 PM »

I am working with single layer 8 bit per channel TIFFs in PsCS56 but all of the transform controls are grayed out. This doesn't seem right. If I make a duplicate layer then they are activated. Clearly I am not understanding something

You need something selected to transform. If you want to transform the whole thing, the Ctrl+A (command A on Mac), or use one of the selection tools to select and area.

You can also unlock the background layer by double clicking on it on the layers palette, transform should then work.
