Can You Believe the Photoshop CC Move Tool Can Do All This! Training Tutorial with Video Guide!

Technical Tutorial Published 3/5/16 Last updated on 2/28/20

This is a video guide for all the tasks that can be performed with the Move Tool, from where to find it in the tools panel, to Auto Aligning layers and even touching on how to use it in 3D mode.

Since making the video I have created some new assets which I can attach here directly and you can use as you wish. The Pool table can be found online here:

It's quite a long video for just covering the Move Tool but goes through everything even with cool demonstrations.

Well done. Is there an image for the table? I'll search for one online because I think the pool table and balls are a good way to keep young minds engaged.

There is a link to the pool table in the description. It's from Wikipedia licenced under creative commons so that's a bonus :)
