2 pics into 1...


Recommended Posts

I know its probably the easiest thing that Im missing, but I cant figure out how to combine 2 pics side by side to make one file. I know it has something to do with layering, but when I try to move the first pic to the side it wont let me, so both pics overlap each other. Any help would be appreciated.

In the top menu of Paint.NET:

Image > Canvas Size...

Make the canvas size in pixels large enough to fit in both pictures.

Next:

Layers > Import From File...

Import first one, then the second image.

Position them with the Move Selected Pixels tool. :MoveTool:

Ok cool. Now I got both pics in there. Can you help me out on how to put in some text captions at the bottom now? Again, it wont let me type anything. Also, after that is done how do I get rid of the remaining part of the image so that I can just keep the 2 pics + the caption?

Add a new layer for the text.

Layers > Add New Layer

Press the Esc key and try the text tool again.

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

Make a Rectangular Selection around the

part of the image that you want to keep.

Then:

Image > Crop to Selection

Thanks again bro. Very helpful. I made the image with text and all, and its ready to go. But now it wont let me post on facebook for whatever reason. I was able to get it on photobucket, but even from there it wont post. I read a couple of other threads and they said to "flatten" and save it as a jpeg. I did both and it still wont post. Any idea what Im doing wrong?
