Move Tool in Photoshop

How To Use Move Tool In Adobe Photoshop

Let’s see how to use move tool in this video.

First open a file from your computer. You can open two images together as we saw in last video. In the left side, you can see some icons. That pane of icons calls as Tool Bar. Right side pane is called as Pallet. You can call your photoshop window as work space.

The first option in tool bar is ‘Move tool’. Move tool is used for moving an image. First you have to unlock layer, to make an image move. In right side of the work space, you can see layer pallet. Click on that and double click on unlock option.

You can give color identification to layers for reducing confusion while working. As shown in video, you can give names, too. Click on ok. Your layer is unlocked, now you can move your image.


The move tool is a simple and intuitive way to move layers and guides. First, make sure the move tool is selected in the toolbar. Next, select a layer you want to move and click on it with the mouse button. Then click and drag the layer to the desired position while holding down the left mouse button.

The move tool is a simple and straightforward tool that allows users to move elements on the layers panel. It can be used to move, duplicate, or resize layers as well as to create a new layer from the current selection.

The move tool in Photoshop is the perfect tool for repositioning images. Whether you want to move an image into a specific position or simply just "nudge" it to the left, the move tool makes it easy. The best thing about this tool is that you can use it on anything, not just photos.

The purpose of the move tool in Photoshop is to allow you to select an item in the photo and then drag it to another location. This can be useful when you are trying to align items in a photo or if you need to change the orientation of an object in the photo.
