How to resize anything (graphics, shapes, patterns etc.) & canvas, file, page size Photoshop. To resize something in Photoshop:
1. Click the layer you want to resize
2. Press CTRL and T on your keyboard, choose one of the corners (not the squares in between the corners, either the top or bottom left/right corners)
3. Left click with your mouse and hold down shift on your keyboard at the same time. Holding down shift is so that the shape, object, graphic etc. maintains it's proportions when you increase or decrease it's size
4. Then drag your mouse inwards (making sure you are pressing the SHIFT key at the same time) to make the object smaller, or drag your mouse outwards (away from your computer) to make it larger.
Warning: Don't enlarge graphics too much as they can become 'pixely' and the file quality will reduce/become blurry and fuzzy.
To change the canvas/template/file size in Photoshop:
1. Go to the image menu at the top of Photoshop
2. Choose 'canvas size'
3. Enter the dimensions you want the canvas/template/file to be
4. If you're reducing the size (making it smaller), choose proceed when the warning message about clipping appears
5. If your object has disappeared (you can't see it anymore) press CTRL and T on your keyboard it will show that the object is outside the boundaries of the document, click on the object and drag it back onto your template
You can do this with multiple objects if you select all of the layers at once (by holding down CTRL on your keyboard and left clicking to select all of the layers you want to move or resize at once), or by clicking the first layer you want to resize, holding down the SHIFT key (instead of CTRL) then clicking on the bottom layer i.e. all of the layers are stacked one on top of each other you don't need to select them all individually using CRTL, by pressing the SHIFT key instead it automatically picks up all of the layers between the first/top and last/bottom layer. You can then resize it as per the instructions above.
Note that I am using a PC/Windows, the keyboard shortcuts may be different for MAC.
I am using Photoshop version CS6 - the same techniques should work with any version of Photoshop.
