how to merge two pics? cant do it!
Posted 01 July 2011 - 11:50 AM
To practise, I have opened an image (pear) from the net, deleted the white background around the pear, and tried to copy and paste that in my background. What I get is the pear with the white around it on top of my background. Not what I was expecting.
I have looked for tutorials, but can't find one that I understand (stupid me) or that works. I have not worked with layers before, except cakes!
Please can you help, as I am fed up with banging my head on the wall? Thank you, thank you, thank you!

EDIT: if you haven't learned layers, get to work! That is one of your most valuable tools in paint.net or any other graphics editor that has them.

the key is to paste the portrait to the background as a new layer, dont save the portrait with transparent background, just highlight the portrait with magic wand, copy it and Ctrl+Shift+V onto the new background.

(like in other, more expensive painting applications):
Use the color selector. Set the transparence of the primary color less than 10 (2 is a good
value). Set the brushsizeto 50 or more.
As more as you use the eraser, as more you can see from the pictures in the other panels.
