How to make a picture smaller in Photoshop CS4?

Question by Herman: How to make a picture smaller in Photoshop CS4?
I recently moved from elements 7 to cs4 and I’m already confused on the most basic things. In elements you could just select the move tool, click on the image and if you moved your cursor to the corner of the picture selected a little two way arrow would show up and you could drag it to make it smaller and bigger. In CS4 you select the move tool click on the picture and nothing shows up! All you can do is move the pic around.

Q&A: my photoshop brushes go blurry when i make them smaller?

Question by beneath the unknown: my photoshop brushes go blurry when i make them smaller?
I download brushes off the internet, usually they are approx 1000px +
When i put them onto a canvas, my canvas is usally 800×600 so i need to make the brush smaller.
So i do so and add it to my canvas, it looks all blurry round the edges of the brush?

I don’t know how to change this, any ideas?

You can try changing the “hardness of the brush.” Select your brush, then with your mouse, “right click” the canvas. Change the hardness from 0 to 100% and that would give you total hardness.

Why does the pen for my Wacom Intuos 4 tablet make a smaller brush size in Photoshop CS4 than with a mouse?

Question by lafemi: Why does the pen for my Wacom Intuos 4 tablet make a smaller brush size in Photoshop CS4 than with a mouse?
In Photoshop CS4 (I use a Mac if that’s relevant), when I paint using a mouse, the brush size is normal, and when I use the tablet pen using the same brush size, it automatically becomes a lot smaller? I could always just make the brush size even bigger just so I can use the pen, but it’s kind of odd. The “target circle” will be huge.
