Merge Specifications

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to merge only portions of one layer into the one below it? For example...

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n219 ... /t_obs.gif

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n219 ... ic/veg.gif

I need to get the little blue dots from the first image to merge onto the second image. I don't need anything else from the first map, JUST the blue dots.

How can I go about doing this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here:

Dots.png

I made the dots purple so you could see them.

What I did was this:

1) Open both graphics on different layers of the same canvas.

2) Set the top layer transparency to about 30% so I could see both drawings at the same time

3) Resize (Select, Click and drag holding the shift key) the smaller map so that the lines matched up with the larger map.

4) Shift click on a "blue dot" to select all blue dots on that layer

5) Flood fill them to purple

6) Ctrl-C to copy the blue, now purple, dots

7) Switch layers and Ctrl-V to paste them onto that layer.

8) Delete the blue dots layer

9) Save as PNG, upload, post, etc.

Step 4, make sure you are using the magic wand and make sure you have the layer selected that has the blue dots on it.

Flood fill = Select purple as your primary color and press the backspace key.
