How to Transform Selections and Paths in GIMP | Beginners Tutorial

In this GIMP 2.10 tutorial I show you how to easily transform selections and paths. Resize or reposition a selection or path with this easy feature found inside all of GIMP’s transform tools. This is a great GIMP basics tutorial for beginners wanting to learn the program to improve their graphic design or photo editing skills.

This technique works for the scale tool, shear tool, rotate tool, flip tool, perspective tool, unified transform tool, move tool, and even the 3D transform tool. This will work with any tool that has the “Path” transform mode.
