dannizpix Posted May 22, 2011 Share Posted May 22, 2011 Hi all. I have been literally struggling with this for months, so I am sure there is some easy way to it. What I want to do is cut part of a photo out and place it onto another background. I have been trying to do this by: using the magic wand tool to cut out the background of the image I want to move. Then I save that as a .png file. I then open the image I want to use as a background and (after copying the .png image,) I paste the .png image on top of the background. At this point, one of two things happens: I either get the first image on there with lots of backgrounds showing through faces, etc; or I get the image pasted onto the background but I get the box with the little grey squares and I cannot see the background through that. I have tried playing with the transparency of the background, but then it still blends through the original images. Can someone please help me and dumb it down as much as possible? I've got all these great digital backgrounds that came with my studio set up and danged if I've been able to use a single one. (I don't have photo shop because its above my head and I really don't have the extra cash for it right now.) Any help is greatly appreciated!
