The Edit Transform Scale command is not working for a pasted image

I am pasting a copied image from one file onto another.  The second file I am copying onto, is a single layer template.  I am then trying to use the Edit Transform Scale command -- which I used many times before -- to then change the size of the copied image to fit it to the template but all of a sudden the PS software will no longer let me change the scale of the copied image.

 

I have tried a bunch of things to address this challenge including reopening the template file and saving it afresh before copying the image onto it and using the Edit Free Transform command instead.  I read the relevant help entry and looked through the community postings herein and did not find any insights therein.  It feels like I have inadvertently toggled a setting so I have looked through what I can see and have not found the answer there either. 

 

I would deeply appreciate assistance on this challenge as I am trying to get a book to the publisher before a deadline and this image is the cover art.

 

Sincerely,

 

     Phil

Hi Folks, Thanks to all who helped. I Reset the Preferences on Quit, closed Photoshop, reopened it, and now the Scale Command is working again! I deeply appreciate your help and tips -- have a great day! Sincerely,      Phil

Have you tried resetting the Photoshop Preferences? They can be found in the Photoshop menu on a Mac and the Edit menu on Windows. Within the General tab is the button Reset Preferences On Quit. This is often a great general purpose fix when Photoshop just starts acting weird.

Hi, could you post a screenshot showing the layers panel, the option bar?

I appreciate that your issue is with copying and pasting. However, I just wanted to point out two options that might be relevant for you at some point that are located within the General tab of the Photoshop Preferences...

  • Resize Image During Place
  • Always Create Smart Objects when Placing
