So, if you have used the Crop tool to hide pixels instead of delete them, you can use the Move tool to reposition the image within that crop boundary, right? But what if you actually now decide I need those pixels back. How do I rebring that canvas out to the full size of the actual image? Easy way to do that. If you go to the Image menu, there's a command here called Reveal All. What that will do is make the canvas as large as it needs to be to show you all your pixels. So, there you have it. You can also use this to, if you have moved an image outside the area and you have got transparency, maybe you have more than one layer here and parts of them-- Here, let's just duplicate this layer. Command+J/Ctrl+J. Let's move this duplicate so it's partly off the canvas as well.
You now want that's large enough to contain both full layers here. Again under Image > Reveal All, and it will expand the canvas to contain all those pixels. So that's the Reveal All command underneath the Image menu.
