gimp background heavy and the foreground sort of hazy.

Postby tbrownarcher2 on Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:56 pm

I have gimp 2.6 . I want to know how to put 2 photos on a card one over the other ... the background should be solid and the forground should be misty or ghostly. Does anyone know how ? .... A long time ago I did it but cannot remember how..
Sorry to those who saw this posted 2 times .. i deleted one of them ....

Thanks,
Nate

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

Basics : Add alpha channels to both pictures. Copy the 2nd picture into the first (paste). Using your layers dialog, adjust the opacity of each picture to the desired level. Save the completed jpeg to a new filename.
