In case you did not get onto the PT forum this week, I wanted to say thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers...saw the cardiologist and I'm going to be good! Just need to reduce stress, take vitamins, add fish oil and keep on keeping on! My heart is in great shape and it should last me at least another 50 years woo hoo!
So with that large weight off of my shoulders, I'm looking forward to 2009!
Based on a thread on the PT forum, I promised to create a "Quick and Dirty" tutorial on how to merge 2 images together using Paint Shop Pro. As always, I'm definately not an expert and I'm sure there are easier ways to do it, but the video shows you what works for me.
Basically, I started with 2 similar but different images that I wanted to merge into 1. I took them when DH and I went to the brand new visitors center in Gettysburg. If you haven't gotten up there (and enjoy history and the civil war) I do recommend it. In any case, here are the pics (note if you click on the image it will open larger):
Now the link for the tutorial can be found with the other tutorials. While you can click on it and watch, if you have a fast connection I recommend that you download it so you can see the closeups a little better.
Here is the way the merged picture looked when I finished the video.
You can still see the break between the 2 images clearly and I have kind of finished getting rid of the horse. As I said, this does take a little time (especially in the beginning when you are first learning how to use your clone brush). I know I went kind of fast but if you have any questions let me know and I will try to help. Also there are PSP tutorials online that you can find that might give you a little more detailed help and explanations. Here is a pretty good one :)
In any case, when all was said and done, here is how the image turned out. I think it looks pretty good. Take a close look and see if you can tell what disappeared and what appeared LOL!
Anyway, take care everyone! Let me know what you think!
