Merging one image into another?


Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I want to merge one image into another....

I want to insert and merge a portrait of a woman's face into a header image (for a website).......

Three parts to the question:

  1. How do I remove the square border from around the woman's picture?
  2. How do I merge the woman's picture onto the header image so it doesn't look like it's "lying on top" of the header?
  3. How do I "mix" the colours or add other effects so that the images look as if they were designed to be together in the first place?

Appreciate your help...

Regards

Greg

Well done Ipswichmanc....that's exactly what I'm trying to do....

But can you point me in the right direction to do it myself....

You know the story - you can give a man a fish and he eats for a day....or you can teach him how to fish and he can eat for a lifetime!!!

Well I'm quite proud of myself.....

I tried the steps as explained and I was able to reproduce what Ipswichmanc showed above....

My results are virtually identical so I'm not going to post them up.....

However, is there a way to try and integrate the woman a bit more into the background?

Just so she looks as if she is emerging from the background????

Is that possible or am I trying to fight above my weight here?????

Really appreciate the help so far...

Regards

Greg

Not sure what you mean .you could make the girl a bit transparent I suppose.you will find that under adjustments.
