    Action records layer transform in percentage NOT pixels???


    Hello, I really need your help.

    I am trying to create an action that will help me with some product images. Every image document I make is the same size (1000 x 1000px). The layer that I paste onto that document will always vary in size. I like my product images to all have the exact same margin. So I always use the transform command to specify that the width of any layer should be exactly 930px. This gives me exactly the same margin on my 1000 x 1000px document every time, regardless of the original layer size. I want to create an action for this to speed up the process but when I press record I hit a stumbling block.

    In reality, I choose transform and set width to 930px.

    Photoshop records me choosing transform then setting the width to 97% (or whatever).

    Percentages are useless to me as my original layers vary radically in size. I need to transform by pixels.

    Can anybody suggest why photoshop is recording my transform by percentage and not the pixels that I actually use?

    HELP!!
