FantasiaWHT Posted September 11, 2010 Share Posted September 11, 2010 Ok I have two images. One is a historic photo of a building on a street, the other is a modern shot from the same angle, and the building is gone. I'm trying to add the old building into the new photo. Some questions: 1) My overall goal is to have the two images superimposed, such that all of each picture (or very nearly all) is visible. I can't figure out how to do that... the gradient tool isn't quite create, because it creates a transition between the two images in a certain direction. The radial gradient comes close to what I want, but not quite. Thoughts on how best to do that? 2) I've been trying to make the sky in the old picture transparent by hitting it with the magic wand so that it all turns checkerboard. Then I save it, and open it as a layer on top of the new photo. But then it's not transparent! Actually, in the layer window, I can see that it shows the checkerboard, but the sky in the old picture is still opaque. What am I doing wrong? Here are the two photos: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
