Change your colors & use the color mode.

You need a render to paste to the other layer...

The checkerboard under th image shows how transparent or opaque it is, and nothing more.

WOW, so much, so complicated....

How do you "select all" on the image?

How do I set my layer opacity?

i need some kind of video, cuz am still lost...may be it's the explenation

Next, we will copy our render onto the sig, resize it, and center it. I find the best method for this is to use the multiple window feature, open up the render, delete the render's name, resize, select all, cut, select the sig make a new layer and paste. Woo, mouthfull. Place the render in the center of the signature. (I resized mine with the aspect ratio to a height of 300)

..im probably lost on that part.

anybody have xfire or AIM so someone can guide me through this?

Sorry. You remind me of myself when I was new with Paint.NET.

There are two ways to select all- press Ctrl+A on the keyboard or use the menu to navigate to Edit> Select all.

To set layer opacity, click on "Layer properties" in the layers window. Then slide the bar titled "Layer Opacity" to... well... set the layer opacity.

Also, if you're working with the 'Move Selected Pixels' tool or 'Move Selection' tool, you can left-click, right-click, or even scroll(button)-click anywhere on the canvas(or outside the canvas) to select all.

It isn't "scroll(button)-click", it's middle-click.

I'm pretty sure Paint3r knew exactly what I was referring to... but thanks for the useless correction.
