Use the Free Transform Tool (Ctrl/Cmd+T) as usual to resize it. Remember to hold Shift while resizing to maintain proportion (we don’t wanna lose the proportions in this step).

  • If you hold the Shift key while rotating, you will increase/decrease 15º each time
  • The Width/Height/Rotate values highlighted in the images below are not exact, they are just for reference
