Hi there

Can someone with experience in PSP7 please explain how to merge two photos together to give the effect that at the "border" one seems to merge into he other.

Ive tried for some time to achieve this effect but havent worked out how to carry this out.

Thanks in anticipation.

Not sure which program you are using, but Canon has a great program Photostich, part of Zoombrowser. Pretty shure you can download it for free from Canons site.

Add a layer mask to the image layer you want to fade out. Using a medium sized and medium opacity brush, mask away bit by bit until it looks right. Easy peasy :P

I have an excellent tutorial saved on my computer but am unable to find the original source on the internet, unfortunately. There are others, however, so check out these pages:



Also try searching Google with these terms: psp tutorial collage using masks and layers.

Don't know about Photoshop 7 but Photoshop Elements has "Create Photomerge" in the File menu.

See page 61 (stitching photographs, chapter six) in Paint Shop Pro 7 - getting started guide. Step by step proceedure.

Hi Pixeldust.

PSP7 is frustration beyond belief.

If added the pics as a new layer, and for the last 40min Ive been trying to achieve what you suggested, withou success, but I did manage to get on pic to fade its edge into the white background, but havent been able to repeat it again.

Can you please give me a slightly more details explanation.

Thanks.............John in Mosgiel.
