At least you can save the selection to a channel and play with it there, just
like manipulating a normal image layer. Standard transformation tool in the
toolbox may do the job (scaling down or rotation, etc. will produce some
"white" are around the layer, may couse difficulty when getting rid of, if your
selection is very complicated). Or, you can create a 100% filled temporary
layer, and transform it then delete it. I believe there are many ways, probably
better, but i use these methods. I hope this will help.


All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
