Cowbrain Posted August 9, 2007 Share Posted August 9, 2007 Hi guys, Ok I am a complete newbie in photo software, sorry I don't know how to name this thread because I don't know what it's called. :shock: Let's say i have a picture of a garden, and I also have a huge letter "A" in black font and white background. I want to put the "A" on top of the garden picture, such the garden will only show through the shape of the "A", and the rest of it is covered up by the "background" of the "A" (which is white). How do I achieve that in Paint.net? I know it is probably child's play for you experts here, but pls be patient with me. I don't even know how to "select" stuff in Paint.net :shock: Could anyone be so kind to run through it step by step for me? I guess I have to somehow convert the "A" font into a "shape"? ANd then make it transparent while leaving the background opaque? I tried to search for tutorials online but it's hard to find because I don't even know what this effect is called although I've seen it so many times... Thanks for your time Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
