artpayne Posted December 20, 2015 Share Posted December 20, 2015 I'm new to PDN but have been most impressed with what I have been able to do so far. However, I can't get my head around Layers. I've looked at the tutorials and even the most basic seems to assume that one has a fundamental knowledge of layers.I want to crop two different images from two different photos and put them together on a different background.As I understand it I will need possibly three layers for this ( at least two) and I understand the way it is to be done. I have followed the instructions in the .pdf Paint.Net - "The unofficial users guide", the section "Cutting Out Images" but it doesn't seem to work for me.I outline the first image from the photo, do the inversion (when the whole thing turns a sort of filmy bue) and select the background layer from the "Layers" panel and press delete. This brings me back to where I was after I outlined the part to be cut out and saved. I can' seem to get past this point.I believe I've followed the instructions to the letter but no result.Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Art Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
