hello, I am a beginner. I will be using photoshop for minor edits. How do I select a part of an image and then stretch it. Much like a simple microsoft paint box select and then stretching the corners of that box select. like the video below, except since that is a old video I cant seem to find the select tool the guy is using on the latest version of photoshop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mihp1DZWXo&list=WL&index=103
I need this to be visual, I dont understand those articles. thank you

Thank you, how do I select show transform controls?
I will search this as well, but just incase thank you
Hi in Move Tool in the options bar you see it...regards
Ahh I see, thank you Soo much!
Using the 'Show Transform' bounding box will only let you edit an entire layer, and not just part of the image. To transfor just part of an image you need to select it — usually with the rectangular marquee tool, and invoke Free Transform with Ctrl T
I suspect you know most of that, but do you know about Edit > Content Aware Scale ?
This shows what happens when CAS is used on exactly the same selection as above. Photoshop has decided that the gaps between the people are less important than the people, and crushed those gaps leaving the people as they were.
If you keep on going, then Photoshop will still try and make as much sense of things as it can. CAS was an early example of Adobe's use of AI, and what they now call Sensei. There's some very clever tricks and tips happening nowadays, and it all makes our lives as content creators that much easier.
