Hi all I am wondering if you arty types can be of assistance.
I am using Photoshop 7.0.1 (just downloaded a trail as not on my PC atm) and I need to do something very simple. Just blend to pictures into one another.
Now I have done the before I know I have. But it was months ago and I cannot work out how and I have been trying but now my head hurts.
I can blend witha pattern no problem. Right Click the pic Fill Use: Pattern and then select the blend method but I cannot for the life of me find out how to do a potentialy simpler job of blending 2 pics.
Please help I am pulling my hair out atm.

Blend as in, superimpose one on top of the other? Just set your opacity to a lower percentage on the layer that's on top.
I may be misunderstanding what you want to do, though....

No you got what I meant. I have just sorted it myself I had a problem geting 2 layers on the same picture (don't know if I am using teh right terminology). Make another layer of on image and move the over layer to the other image/pictur so that has 2 seperate different layers. Then I can blend.
Also the drag and drop was a pain you ghad to get it exactly spot on to the pixel by using your mouse wtf then worked out you have to hold
shift down. Geez.
Probably doing it the hard way but it is the way I understand now even though cannot explain. :)
Thanks for the input though babe.

how are you supposed to use the clone tool properly? i've been trying to take urls and stuff off o wallpapers with it...

First, you select the Clone Stamp Tool. Pick the part of the work you wish to clone, then press ALT. Next, go the piece of the wallpaper you wish to remove, and hold your Left moust button down like you would if you were using the paintbrush tool. BUT make sure you don't go out of the boundaries from which you wanted to clone orignially, otherwise, you will have a part of the wallpaper where you didn't want it to be. If you have any other questions, post it, and I'll try to help.

small areas at a time with it, or plaster over it madly?

It depends if the color of the background fades or changes a lot. If so, then yes, you would have to do a little bit a time, going back to the source and holding ALT and click, then painting. If it's a solid background, you can just continue using it, unless you get a part of the wallpaper you didn't want, then you would have to edit undo, and then go back to the source and do it again. NOTE: If you must, you would most likely have to pick another part of the wallpaper closer to the part you want gone, then do it.

I use the clone tool when doing image editing (don't know if applies) but the job I do in photography requires the removal of pipples and junk. Clone tool never fails, also helps when restoring a damaged photo!
