can somebody please help with my setting for saving


Recommended Posts

Hi there can somebody please tell me where i am going wrong,

After taking a free image from bing images or similar and saving to my folder i then upload it to paint where i add txt and overlay another smaller image in the bottom corner i then save it as a jpeg

all i want to do is to be able to upload it to my website and have it be the same size as the original one

But when i open the new image it is a lot smaller in size but as expected the file is bigger

can somebody please advise as to what i am doing wrong

Thanks for any advice

Open the Union Jack image.

Next, import the original.

Layers > Import From File

It will import already selected, so you can do this:

Image > Crop to Selection

-----------------------------------

Now, delete the imported layer.

The edit is now correctly cropped.

Save.

If you start from scratch, open the original instead of importing it.

File > Open

It will be sized correctly that way.

If the union jack is a big image, resize it separately before bring it in.

Otherwise it will expand the canvas when it's brought in.

I don't know what size your source image for the union jack is.

(pixel dimensions)

Heh Sarkut thanks for all the help , i have managed to do what you said and the picture with the txt in it is saving to a perfect size, can i ask you one more question please?

I have done what you said and i have the picture with the txt in it and i have resized the union jack and brought that in on a seperate layer but i cant get the picture of the jack to merge in with the picture of the girl, can you explain the best way for me to do that

thanks again for all your help

A layer is always merged down, into a layer below it.

If you have only two layers, make the top one the active layer.

-------------------------------------

Merging layers is done one layer at a time.

The menu option of Image > Flatten will combine all layers into one simultaneously,

whether you have two layers or a hundred layers. Which layer is active doesn't matter.

We are probably having a problem with semantics around the word

"merge" which has a specific jargon meaning in image editing.

Could you post a link to a full screenshot of the open file in Paint.NET?

Showing the full Paint.NET user interface with all floating windows?

If there is a Direct Link showing on the left near the bottom,right-click

the words Direct Link, copy link location, paste into the forum post.

Internet Explorer's right-click will say Copy Shortcut.

It varies with different browsers.
