Problem trying to make images overlap.


Recommended Posts

So I want to move this fuzzball into a circle like this:

On a fuzzball like this even my magic wand wont work and if I just move it with the move tool I will end up with this:

Surprisingly if I use MS paint this task is easily done with one mouse click. But is there any option in Paint.NET that enables me to do the same thing? Seeing as it's something that comes up very often in everyday use something like this should exist, but being a new user I can't find the option anywhere. I'd appreciate some help regarding this matter.

Edit: Forgot to mention that it has to be done in one layer, because if I want to move 100 fuzzballs into the same circle it would be troubling to use 101 layers.

select with the lasso tool around the fuzzball, very vaguely. Then while pressing shift, right click anywhere in the white. then move the fuzzball. Hope this helps.

That didn't really help, even if you remove all the white areas manually it will take a long time. And shift-right-clicking didn't really do anything special for me. What I'm looking for is a simpler solution like the one in MS paint.

how are you going to use this fuzz ball. random on screen or in some sort of symetric order.

if in symetric entire page you could possibly make one and then photo flood fill the page.

random dots different sizes can be done this way

how about you make one with the just the fuzzy on transparent layer save as a png and use as a brush to add to the random circles.

After you drag the fuzzball with the white box, use the paint bucket to fill the white with the gray background color. Turn the tolerance up to your liking.

The fuzzball is too fuzzy to fill all of the small white areas with the gray. And even if that'd work, it still wouldnt solve it if the pictures we are handling are more complex. I just want to completely get rid of the white background so I can make two pictures overlap.

did you shift right-click in the white with the magic wand tool selected?

Yes, I tried that too. It did remove one of the white parts but removing all of them manually would be a pain (at least if the fuzzball is larger). But this does solve the problem in cases where there isn't any white area inside of the object, so I have to thank you for the information.

that's odd. It's supposed to deselect all white areas. :? It works for me, leastways..

I was going to suggest putting the fuzzball on a new layer and setting that layer to multiply, which would work exceptionally well for antialiased things, but as your fuzz balls are aliased, I still think just selecting the general area and then deselecting the white in the area would be to your benefit.

Hmm, I tested shift-right-clicking with different fuzzballs and it did work with most of them. There are still some cases where it doesn't work but this should solve the problem in easier cases. Thank you for solving this for me and possibly other new users who were troubled by this.
