if i paste an image into another, a white background of the new image overlays part of the original image
how do i make it turn see through? so that only the two images are there with no white overlay

That white part is copied over from the image you're trying to paste...either you'll have to remove the background beforehand so that when you copy it over, it's transparent...or you'll have to paste the image into a new layer and then remove the white stuff there. Hope this helps...let us know if you need help with anything else! :)

what file types are your images? because if they are jpg's, or bmp's, they won't support transparency, so even if you save them while they have transparency, it won't save them that way.

Also remember to paste on a new layer.
