I want to add the image of a person so that she sits on a fallen tree in a second photograph.

Please, is there an easy (!) way of doing this.

Is there a programme/tutorial on line I can consult and use?

Any help you can offer will be gratefully received!

My thanks in advance.

You're not too specific with exactly what you want to do.

First, you're going to need a program to work with. I recommend GIMP ( http://www.gimp.org ). The professional standard would be Photoshop.

Anyways, with what I think you want to do, there isn't an Easy way to do it, or even much of a somewhat medium difficult way to do it. I couldn't find a quick tutorial that kind of does what I think you want to do with the image. I mean, if you want I could try and do it for you. That'd probably be the easiest way.

Thank you, Vaerli, for your help and kind offer.

I have been "given" an image of a fallen tree by a group member who has set our regular image "competition". This is jpeg format.

I want to add the image of a rather large lady and place it so that she sits on the fallen trunk.(This is gif format).

This is not a competition that is serious in any way. It is intended to give the regulars a chance to show some imagination and the opportunity to make fellow-members laugh.

I have Adobe Photodeluxe (Home Edition) 3.1 which is ancient by PC standards but which I love.

I also have Photoshop Elements 2 which I hardly ever use as I do not really"understand" it.

I shall certainly have a look at the programme you recommend as I am no professional!!

Your offer to undertake the task on my behalf is a very kind, and tempting, one but as it is a contest (LOL), I think I would be resorting to unfair practices.


My THANKS.

Probably too late now, but I have been manipulating pictures for years with the simple Paint program in XP.

Just a matter of pasting the two images into Paint; cropping the one picture with the Free-Form select tool
and moving it into position onto the other.

Or am I missing something here.

Someone else mentioned this programme, Petewills, and also the word "tubing". To be honest I thought the programme would not be sophisticated enough but this could be a case of a bad workman blaming the tools!

I will certainly give your suggestion a try. Thanks.

Using the mouse to do the job is a little awkward at first; you get used to it quickly,
otherwise you would need some other input device, specifically for graphics. (Graphics tablet and pen, for example).

Don't know what is meant by tubing.

Good luck.

I surmise the word "tubing" is something to do with graphics but I haven't sussed it out as yet.

I do have a tablet and pen actually ; had forgotten about it! Thanks again.

Seems to relate to images - you still have to manipulate them, though.

Just one link for tubing graphics.

Tubing design looks complicated.
