Do you have an image with an excess border or transparency and want to trim it away? Or, did you move a layer so it’s hiding off of your image preview and need to automatically extend the canvas size? This tutorial is for you! In this (very short) “Two Minute Tip” I show how to use the Photoshop commands “Trim” and “Reveal All” to help automate those tasks and make re-sizing your document a breeze.

    So handy! I’ve needed both of those several times, but made the changes manually because I didn’t know about Trim and Reveal All. I just love your two minute tips. Thank you!!

    Thanks for the tip – I had never tried those two commands, but they will definitely come in useful.

    Wow! That’s super cool, Nicole! I knew about Reveal All, but I didn’t know about Trim! I use Canvas Size to remove what I don’t want, but now I’ll use Trim :~)
