Resize layer

I have 2 layers. The background and the foreground. I can't scale the foreground layer. I need to make it about twice the size. Is there a 'resize' tool?

Thanks Brad

Is there a resize tool ? Yes, several depending on your favourite method.

With the layer active.

Layer -> Scale layer. Choose your units pixels / percentage ... enter values in the dialogue and ok. Use the move tool to re-position if required.

The scale tool in the tool box (shift-S) Click in the layer, drag to size or use the dialogue. Drag around to reposition. OK to fix.

A quick example of both those: https://i.imgur.com/pVK4yYW.mp4

If the scaled up layer is larger (or outside) the original canvas size then use Image -> Fit canvas to Layers.
