New to Paint.net with merge problem


Recommended Posts

Paint.net forum,
 I downloaded Paint.net 4.0.0 and this is my first time using a paint program.

 In my session I have opened 2 pdf files.  One contains a simple drawing
 and the other is just a solid color.  My goal is to use one as a background
 and then make it transparent.  They are shown as 2 different layers and I
 labeled one Foreground and the other Background.  I have successfully
 erased the white pixels around the drawing and now I want to merge the
 2 layers together.  When I click on "Layers" the Merge option is grayed out.

 

 What am I doing wrong?

If the Image > Flatten menu item is grayed out, your image only has 1 layer.

 

I'm thinking that you actually opened both pictures into different images.  Can you show us a screenshot of your ENTIRE paint.net window?
