I'm having a problem here. I don't understand why editing an
imported/pasted picture isn't more straightforward. Why is it not as
simple as selecting the area to edit and choosing the scale tool? I keep
finding myself in some strange editing mode where I can't switch layers
and I can't scale anything.
I simply want to do the following:
1) Import picture as layer
2) Crop that import
3) Scale that crop
. . .for whatever reason it always wants to scale the background or the
layer. I just want to edit the picture I have selected.
