Merging 2 Photos


Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm thick but I'm having a terrible time trying to merge together 2 photos. I have read different forum postings on this and searched Google. Basically I understand I'm suppose to open one photo and then paste another photo on top of it. However I can copy the second photo but paint will not give me the option to paste it on top of the first one. I was able to paste it to another layer but I still could not merge the two together. HELP!!

After you paste into a new layer, use:

Image > Flatten

or

Layers > Merge Layer Down

======================================

Perhaps the problem is something else.

Could you post links to the two images

that you are trying to merge along with

some additional explanation.

I think that the problem is that it is unclear

what you mean when you use the word "merge".

Merge has a specific jargon meaning for Paint.NET users,

however I think you mean something else.

Try this:

Paste your second image into a new layer above the first image.

Press F4.

In Layers Properties move the Opacity slider to 128.

Is this the effect you want?

Sarkut, your URL was ..../Layerswindow. In Google Chrome, it gives me the option to go to ...../Layerswindow.

The 2nd URL links to ..../LayersWindow.

Yes, the forum html translates the URL W to lower-case.

As you may notice in your own post.

No worries.

It's a problem with all three of these:

Edit: tinyurl links removed, no longer needed.

If you'd like to have working links to bookmark for forum use,

click the Reply button at the bottom of this post and

copy out the tinyurl variants.
