Photoshop – How to Resize an Image (Photo) in a Layer?

Question: Let’s say I’m building a PSD file in Photoshop with different elements in it, including JPGs or GIFs I have on my hard drive. Currently I open the desired JPG in Photoshop, hit CTRL+A, CTRL+C to select and copy the image, then CTRL+V to paste that image into the PSD that I’m building. The problem is that I often need to resize that image in the new PSD, but I don’t see any “handles” or anything like that to resize the image easily. I know I can resize the image before I copy and paste, but that’s tedious because it involves a bit of trial and error. Is there an easier way to do this?

Answer: CTRL+T when at selected layer, then resize.
