Contract/Expand
Shrinks or enlarges the selection boundary. You can enter a value or move the slider to set the amount from 0 to 100% to expand, 0 to ‑100% to contract. It is most useful for making subtle adjustments to soft-edged selections. To remove unwanted background colors from selection edges you can use shrinking the selection.

For images where the colors of the selected object are distinct from the background, try increasing the Radius, applying Contrast to sharpen edges, and then adjusting the Contract/Expand slider. For grayscale images or images where the colors of the selected object and the background are very similar, try smoothing first, then the Feather option, and then Contract/Expand.

In Image: E.g. use this tool with and without feathers in an image and drag the image to another page to see the effect.

Without feather:

  1. Make a selection using ellipse marquee too.
  2. Drag the selection using the move tool to another page.

With 20 px feather:

  1. In the option bar put the value of feather to 20 px.
  2. Make a selection using ellipse marquee too.
  3. Drag the selection using the move tool to another page.

Align and distribute user slices

You can align the objects of the different layers along an edge or their centers, and distribute user slices evenly along the vertical or horizontal axis. For that, you should select two or more layers that contain objects and choose the required alignment or distribution.

Auto-align Layers:

This command is very useful for automatically align layers based on similar content in different layers, such as corners and edges. Photoshop automatically chooses the reference layer. Other layers aligned to the reference layer so that matching content overlays itself.

Auto Photoshop itself analyzes the source images and applies either a Perspective or Cylindrical layout, depending on which produces a better composite.

Perspective It creates a consistent composition by designating one of the source images (by default, the middle image) as the reference image. The other images are transformed (repositioned, stretched, or skewed, as necessary) so that overlapping content across layers is matched.

Cylindrical It reduces the “bow-tie” distortion that can occur with the Perspective layout by displaying individual images as on an unfolded cylinder. Overlapping content across layers is still matched. The reference image is placed at the center. It is best suited for creating wide panoramas.

Reposition Only It helps to Aligns the layers and matches overlapping content, but does not transform (stretch or skew) any of the source layers so this is also very important in photoshop.

Steps:
1.   Choose more than two required layers.
2.   Then click on the auto-align layers on the options bar.
3.   Then Choose the required option and click on the OK button.
