1st of all I'd like to say there is just some awesome work done here by everyone, something I haven't even touched on...I know basic editing, only...

My question is can someone help me in this project...Only today did I cut and paste this on the branch photo...I have always wanted to do this but, well you can see what I'm asking...I didn't really choose this as a real project but wanted to see if could take part of photo and put on another one...Would you be able to guide me through basic steps as how to blend this together...Any suggestions, guidance would be appreciated much...Oh I forgot to maention I have Vicman's Photo editng program, which I had won...I hear it's like caveman type program, but I think it has basic stuff like PSP or any of the others...I did make a big effort trying to learn and am familiar with the tools just don't know how to apply...Also have Paint.Net, I can do some basics...

Hiya Juanita
Have a look at this tutorial and see if it helps:
http://www.pinoy7.com/psptutorials/7/blendingphotos/p1.shtml

The trick is to work on layers so you can change PART of the picture without affecting the whole of it.

Wow - that's looking so much better. You can probably move his head and place it away from the branch that is in front of his face, if you choose. That's quite a picture already!

Elaine, I had to cover up a flaw I was too lazy to fix. "LOL"

Juanita, I just made it up from my experience with PSP.
The Url Sue gave you is really the way to do it but I did not have your two pictures to work with so I tried using the one you posted here for an example.
The steps were not according to Hoyle.
The trick is tracing around the image you want to paste on using Modify,Feather.
But----If you do not have PSP?

Urlee - You won't believe this, but I actually read the message so fast, I thought Juanital had accomplished this herself. I might have known you would have jumped in here and helped her. So glad you took the branch out of his eye, lol.

Without the original pictures, you sure did a great job!
Elaine
