blends and transparent boxes

Recommended Posts

How can I make blends of 2 or more pictures together so it looks something like this?


And also, how can I make a box on a picture transparent, so you can see the picture behind it, but it's sort of like a little lighter, so you can see the text in the box? Something like this:

Start by opening the image you want to add stuff to. Then go to Layers > Import form file... This will let you add another image on top of the other one. It will also put the new image on its own layer. You will have one layer with one image on it and another layer with a second image on it. Open the properties for the top layer (the layer with your second image) by going to Layers > Layer Properties, pressing F4, or by double clicking the layer inside the Layers window. Adjust the Opacity of the image to your satisfaction. You can make it semi-transparent or you can leave it like it is. After you have it like you want it, flatten the image and save it.

This is just a quick example using the pictures from your links:


If there is a specific object or person in an image that you want to place in another image you can read April's 'Quickmasking Tutorial' here: http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=1127

The same principle can be used to do the transparent boxes

Here is another example:


NOTE: These are just quick and crude examples to give you an IDEA of how it can be done and by no means are they meant to give an example of what Paint.NET can ONLY do. You can produce much more sophisticated results with a 'lil creativity, experimentation, and some patience on your part. :D

A necropost that actually predates my arrival to the forum. Wow. That's a first.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
