Im looking to paste an image onto another image, you chaps have shown me how to do that, what im trying to do is remove the white backgorund from a pic similar to this, so that i can paste it into another pic. IS THERE an easy way to do this, without going round the whole shape with the lassoo tool. Ie turn the background into a "see thorugh layer"
I want to copy one image and paste it into a selection (masked) of another image. I have the option to paste into which works but would like to be able to paste in Place as I believe this makes it a smart object and references the original file.
I'm trying to write a script to batch process a number of files. I want the script to open file a*.png, convert black color to alpha and paste image b*.png on top of a*.png (both are the same size). The script converts black to alpha, but it doesn't paste image.
I just finished a logo design in corel draw x5.The design was made on a a4 dimensions.I copy the elements to paste them into a much smaller canvas but the image when minimized is pixelated not vectored as the original.
How can I paste the image and the image is as the original (vectored)?
i was wondering if it would be possible to get a plugin or maybe there's a way to do this that would 'blend' the border of one image that you paste on top of another, larger image. so that the borders wont contrast - like a black dot on a white page.
if that description doesn't make sense, imagine using such a tool on a a black dot on a white page. it would make the outer part of the circle transition from black, to dark grey, to a lighter grey, and then to white...
I want a plugin for Paint.NET and i will show what i want to say in some pictures.For this exemple i will have :
A. a transparent image (800x600) B. a red ball image (32x32)
1. I have the A image. 2. I copyed and pasted the ball image B on the A image. 3. Now what plugin i want to make is to expand the ball B selection on the all A screen/canvas. 4. Now the ball image B will be expanded on the all screen of A.
basically i have a picture of and deleted the background from that picture and now i want to paste just the person from that picture onto a stripped background and add stroke around the person. when i just drag it..it drags the white background along with it.
I have created an image on a document sized 14.5*10 cm. I am trying to copy the whole image to a new A4 document and it looks tiny or very fuzzy (if resized). Why is the image tiny when the document size is not that much different?
Worked with an earlier version of Photoshop which had , well much more than I needed before.
But there are some basic things that, if because of how I work and the speed I am used to with the 'flow' of things, I will not remain on PS and go back to psp if this is not possible. Seems like software is going backwards but I disgress
Issue: I want to be able to print screen, and then jump into PS and just click anywhere on the gray area and paste the scrnshot as a new image or hovering selection onto a current image without having to open a new window to the size of the image.
Also - The zoom tool is VERY annoying in PS. I'm used to being able to just use the mouse wheel to zoom in, fix something , then quickly zoom out to check the validity of the fix...or zoom back in and repair the issue further etc etc. Is this not possibly also?
I REALLY need AT LEAST these two functions to work like this. Everything else I will muttle through unless there is 30 steps to do what I could do in 5 in psp which from what I hear I doubt.
I use illustrator most of the time. I'm designing a brochure and I've always embedded images, but now I'm trying to it correctly by linking them instead. So I have an image in ps as a tiff. I created a drop shadow for the image in illustrator.
I want to copy and paste it behind the image into the same file so both are one file linked to the brochure. Also the drop shadow pastes as too small, then i also can't get it positioned right etc.
I've just started using PS Elements 10 again after not having used it for some time, and I've forgotten a few things. When I paste an image which I've selected from another image (image A) into a layer mask for image B, the image A selection appears in black and white. Also, is there a quick way to return PS Elements 10 to its default settings?
What is the best way to paste an image into a background and have it blend nicely with the background to avoid jaggies.
I've been playing with the blur and smudge icon but then it depends on my eye and I lose resolution around the edges. I guess what I would want ideally is for a way to paste my image then have a slider or a way to select the amount of anti aliasing from image to background.
I'm a relative noob to GIMP. Long time Paint Shop Pro user who has gone over to a Mac Book. I'm very frustrated by my inability to paste more than one layer at a time. Meaning, that I paste a layer from the clipboard into an image I am building, but I cant copy a new image to paste in without shutting down the program & reopening....Otherwise the same image keeps trying to repaste.
Whenever I paste an image from the internet into Gimp, the image is shifted 3 pixels to the right, and those three pixel columns wrap around to the left side. At the bottom of those three now leftmost columns are a red, green, and blue pixel.
What the bottom left corner looks like:
This only started recently and I can't think of anything I changed recently to trigger it.
Is there a trick to pasting a pixel-perfect vector image from Illustrator into Photoshop as a smart object, and not introduce a bunch of anti-aliasing that was not in the original file? My images are perfectly aligned with the pixel grid in Illustrator, and the pixel preview shows them correctly.
This page is useful for dealing with vector shape layers, but the techniques he talks about don't work for smart objects. Strangely, he says he doesn't have a problem with smart objects, but I do.
Here is an example of what I'm talking about: a simple 13x13 pixel image in Illustrator turns to crap in Photoshop when pasted as a smart object (I know an image as simple as this could be pasted as a shape layer, but the real images I'm working with are much more complex, and cannot be pasted as simple shape layers).
When I Select All/Copy a photo to Paste as New Layer on top of another photo, it always pastes as a humongous image. I have to scroll & scroll & scroll down to find grab handles, then fiddle & fiddle resizing the image to the same size as the underlying photo. I take the photos with the same camera. Seems to me the photos ought to be the same size!
If I take an image, and using the path tool, draw an area, then do a selection from path, cut/copy and paste as 'new image' then save the new image as a .bmp, .jpg etc, I am getting the whole original image instead of the cut an pasted portion. The full image does not show up as long as the drawing remains in .xcf (the background is a grey checkerboard). When saved as .jpg or .bmp the checkerboard is replaced by the original source image that it was cut from. This is Gimp 2.6.11 under Linux.
I have checked for extra layers, tried removing alpha channels, doing a 'copy visible' and re-pasting, merging of all layers all to no avail. It doesn't always happen either so there must be something, some setting or clicky box somewhere.
So I am trying to work with a web page template in dreamweaver. I am attempting to open the background image in this template with gimp, then paste over top of the Original image with a new image. Every time I paste the new image in it takes the color style of the original.
I.E. The original image is in shades of brown while the new image is in many different colors. Whenever I paste the new image (the image with many colors) it changes to shades of brown like the original image.
The same thing happens if I open the new image as a new layer or just simply copy and paste the new image in.
How do I bring the new image in without it changing colors?
For our field layouts we simply copy and paste image from google earth then scale them (using CTRL + C and CTRL + V).For some reason now, my image that was already pasted into a drawing now only shows the border of the image, not the image itself. Same story with any new images I try to paste in. How to fix this back so I can view my images?
Ive built a website to sell makeup and cosmetics and am currently in the process of photographing every item to get the products on the site.
I take the pics on a white card background, in GIMP I need to basically 'cut out' the product and copy and paste it on to a blank white template. By using a template all my pics should be the same size once uploaded on to my site.
