I wanted to resize the whole object and so I tried selecting it with the white arrow but it wouldn't select!  Everytime I do so, it only shows "path". Please help!

I tried that too but can't. It will only select those small little objects but not the whole image whenever I use the white/black selection tool.

You might need to show us what it is you're selecting, describe what you expect to happen and what happens instead.

Sure. So I want to resize this whole image (as shown in the first screenshot) and so I used the white selection tool to select the whole image (just like what I've been doing). This time round I selected the whole image again but I couldn't and just yesterday, I was able to do it with no problems at all. The second screenshot is what appears to be selected, instead of the whole image.

Do you mean it's not possible to select anything on that image except those paths?

If you drag a marquee selection over the whole thing, that's all it is possible to select?

Can you show the layers panel with layers and that object expanded please?

Does Select All from the Select menu change anything. Or you could use View>Show/Hide Bounding Box.
