Using paintbucket on imported image

Recommended Posts

File > :FileOpen:Open your picture


:AddNewLayer: Add a new layer. It's important. Make sure this new layer is selected ("blue")

Layers > :ImportLayers: Import from File your template


Select the white part with the :MagicWandTool:Magic Wand tool.

Edit > :Delete: Erase Selection.


You're done.

If you deselect the flowers layer, you'll see a checkboard background, it means that this area is transparent.


Note: There is different manners to do that, (via Edit > :PasteNewLayer: Paste in New Layer and such), but this method is quickest as you've to open only one image.

If you do not understand the layers thing very well, I recommand you the related help page: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/3.05/en/Lay ... Modes.html

It's installed on your computer too, in Help > :Help: Help Topics.

No. Way. I've just seen Bob. And... *poof!*—just like that—he disappears into the mist again. ~Helio
