This is my first tut so I'm sorry if it's a little shabby. :oops:

The good part is, it doesn't require any plug-ins at all!

1. Open the two images you want to combine.

Posted Image

2. If there is a background on one of them and you don't want it there, then select the whole image and deselect the background.

Posted Image

3. Copy then paste the image in a new layer onto the other one.

Posted Image

4. Change the new layer's transparency level as you wish.

Posted Image

5. If there is a flat line, let's say at the bottom of the image where it got cut off, select that part using the free-hand select tool.

Posted Image

6. Open up the effects menu and click Distort and click the :FrostedGlass: Frosted Glass effect.

Posted Image

7. Set the levels to whatever you think looks best for that image.

Posted Image

8. Deselect the image.

9. Flatten the image. (Unless you want to add more images to it, then repeat steps 1-8)

Posted Image

10. Enjoy your new combined image!

Here are those finished products I was telling you about:

You should take a look at the tutorial posting guidelines, available here: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=26921 - specifically, look at rules 5, 5a, and 6. I like your style, and you'll be great someday, but stick around a while before you try tossing a tutorial out there. :-) Thanks.

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
