In this blog post I talk about resizing a photograph that you paste on top of another photograph. One of the most common requests I get is how to do this. It is really easy! Lets first talk about why this happens.
When you are copying a photograph and pasting it on top of another one you may come across a problem. You will notice that sometimes the photograph you pasted is to large and you cannot see the photograph below it. The reason for this is because one of the photographs is a higher resolution therefor being a larger photograph then the other one. This can happen for several different reasons but the most common is due to focal length, using two different cameras or working with JPG or RAW. There are probably other reason also for why this happens. Your first thought to fix the problem might be trying to resize the photograph to fit the resolution or dimensions of the photograph below it. This can cause issues and warp the photograph. You are basically moving pixels around and that can cause artifact or warp your photograph. The easy solution is using the selection tool. This tool is great and can make your life a whole lot easier when editing in this format.
