Scaling an still image - Final Cut Express
How can I move and scale a still image in FCE?

I've added a Photoshop image with alpha as a second track in FCE. My main video clip is in track 1.

I can see the semi-transparent overlay of the image but it's in the centre of the frame and too big. I just don't seem to be able to find a way to scale and move it.

I can select it. A light-blue wireframe surrounds it. I thought I may be able to use this to move and resize but it won't budge.

Any ideas, pointers to web pages etc gratefully received.

Sorry if this is a dumb question for the more experienced FCE users out there but I've searched here and Googled but I'm still coming up short.

I've got an answer so with the thought someone else may find it useful. I had to switch to "Image + Wireframe" in the viewer, then I got grab handles at the edge of the selection that allowed scaling.

Time to RTFM I think!
