Having trouble blending 2 images


Recommended Posts

You are looking for layer blend modes. Double click on the layer to be blended in your layer window, then play with the settings. I would try lighten or screen if you are making the same thing as the tutorial

Blend modes are like the filling in your sandwich. It's the filling that can change your experience of the sandwich. ~Ego Eram Reputo

"....without loss of opacity or color." That's like trying to merge a basketball and a banana! boltbait.big_smile.png (i.e. the only way you're going to do it is by cutting out (removing) part of one image to accomodate the other).

The edges where the two images meet will (most likely) be abrupt unless you apply some sort of blend or blur to smooth the transition.

Can you upload the image you're working on to ImageShack or Photobucket (or other service) and post the link here so we can have a look?

I am trying to blend these 2 pictures to make a background.

I dont want to lose the planet or the light.

If clicking the link doesn't work do right click open in new tab.

You could have just edited your previous post...

Anyhow, you are looking for the "lighten" layer blend mode.

Put the planet image on a new layer on top of the other image and set blend mode to lighten, then select the bottom layer and select and delete the parts that are underneath the planet.
