Dear Board,

I am new to this board, but an old hand here at the fool. I need some help with how to use GIMP.

I am new to GIMP and not buying photoshop hopefully.

I want to put two photos into one, but dont know how with GIMP to do that.

any help would be appreciated. I am beginning to read the tutorials and the downloadable help sections. I have not yet in the tables of contents seen an explanation of how to put photos into the same collective shot.

TIA,

Dave

Not sure what you mean by "putting two photos into one." Do you want to transfer a part of an image into another image, or place two images side by side to create a wider or taller one? Clarifying the attempted task will bring you more answers.

You should be able to open both, use the marquis tool to highlight the smaller one, select "copy", go to the other image and "paste". The use the move tool (I think it's looks like an arrow...I don't have GIMP on this computer so can't check right now) to reposition it where you want it.

I'm far from an expert on the nuances of the various formats. Sometimes you have to select mode "RGB" to do some things, sometimes not. However, I am not aware of any reason why you must use JPEG to do what you're asking. The software should be able to "flatten" the image (which basically removes the layer designations and makes it a single image) and save in any format you wish.
