How to make multiple still pictures into 1 still frame ?

Recommended Posts

I have about 8 different still pictures of food. How do I placed all them into 1 single still pictures ? Or placed them into two still pictures with each showing 4 different food pictures (say in 2 x 2) ?

I mean if I have still pictures A,B,C,D,E, F,G,H and I want to have one frame of still picture showing A,B,C,D in (2x2) and another still picture showing E,F,G,H (also in 2 x 2)

I tried to do it in Paint.Net by importing into the canvas and resizing the image to a quarter size of the canvas size. When I tried to import in the 2nd image, the first image is not on the canvas. When I select back the 1st image, the 2nd image is not on the canvas. In other words, I couldn't find a way to work on both image at the same time so I am not able to merge 4 of them (I still haven't import the other 2 in)

Any ideas ?

Based upon what you've said (though I'm not certain I completely understand), you're doing it right. But instead of Resize, I think you should use Layers > Rotate/Zoom.

1. Open the file you want to start with.

2. Using Layers > Rotate/Zoom, shrink the image down to 25%.

3. Import the next file you want to work with on a new layer.

4. Use Layers > Rotate/Zoom to shrink it to 25%. Move it into a blank area of the image.

5. Repeat 3 and 4 to add the other two pictures.

6. Marvel in your abilities! :-)

Hope this helps.
