Command (Mac) / Control (Win) + T brings up the free transform bounding box. Holding the Shift key while dragging any of the corner anchor points (handles), forces proportional transformations while Option (Mac) / Alt (Win) transforms from the center. In addition:
  • Command (Mac) / Control (Win) freely distorts an image.
  • Command (Mac) / Control (Win) + Shift skews an image.
  • Option-Command (Mac) / Alt-Control (Win) + Shift changes the perspective of an image.
To apply a transformation tap the return or enter key, to cancel a transformation hit the escape key.
