Help with Collage and with Scale


Recommended Posts

Hi,

As a newbie could someone help with this please?

I,m trying to place three different pictures of the same object side by side to form just one picture. I also need to see a scale on the final picture, so its important I get the size correct of all three pics.

Can some one help please? I,m sure its easy but i,m having trouble. I also need to take out any background from the pictures to leave just the object. What I,m trying to do is post on the Portable Antiquities Scheme web site, which is a place to record metal detecting finds and objects..Hence the need for one picture showing front, back ,and side of the same object...

Thanks in advance

Look at the "layers" feature. You can create 3 layers in addition to the first layer which should be considered the background layer. Put one image in each layer. You can move each image independently by changing which layer you're working with in the layer's window. (You can hide or show layers with that window too. Useful when laying things out.).

You should post an example of the scale. But, that would just go in another layer, and positioned independently just like the 3 images.

That was discussed recently here: http://forums.getpai...page__p__332458

Just to help untangle this for future readers:

Your post appears to renew your original post which was locked by Rick due to a vague title. The second half of this new post contains my reply to your original post.

It's not clear if you're asking for additional help. Or, need clarification about anything I suggested. Please pose a new question if you have one.

BTW: Regarding the scale which applies to all three images(?), you could include a ruler in each photo. Then resize two photos to so the ruler is the same size as the other photo. Copy the the ruler from one photo and paste it in a 4th layer, positioning the ruler at the bottom of the collage. You can cut out the ruler of all the photos as part of the process of removing their backgrounds.

That's just one idea that came to mind, without seeing an example from the antique site.

After you do a few of these, it's not as complicated as it sounds.
