On challenge Post-Processing Salvation - # 3 (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

ANAYV: Need help.

how can i put the before and after photos next to each other?
(or one on top of the other)?

i.e. how do I merge the two so they are one image, for this challenge?

I have FastStone and also PhotoShop Elements 14.

thanks

ANAYV,
Open both images, then click 'Window>Images>Tile'. That should show both images on screen, side-by-side.
Then make your 'after' image active by clicking in the image somewhere.
Next, find the 'Move' tool. I think it's the top one on your left tool palette. Or type 'V' on your keyboard.
Left-click in the 'after' image, hold the button down, and drag the image over to the blank area of the canvas, and drop it there by releasing the left mouse button. Left click again to position the 'after' image. I think with Elements you can also use the Arrow Keys on the bottom right of the keyboard to make very small (one pixel) adjustments. Hold the Shift Key while using the Arrow Keys, and you get a 10 pixel movement.

To put two photos next to each other, you need to first make the 'canvas size' larger for one of the photos. In Photoshop Elements, this is done with 'Image>Resize>Canvas Size'.
Then, with both photos on your screen, use the 'Move' tool ( try 'V' on your keyboard) to drag and drop the second photo over to the blank area of the canvas. This will make a layer automatically, so when you have the photo positioned the way you want it, click 'Layer > Flatten Image'.
I hope this helps. I don't use Elements, but it's very similar to Photoshop which I do use.

The tea room of the Prince of Wales hotel in Waterton. This is really familiar to me. You got a nice photo of it. Congratulations on your third place finish! Good work!

Excellent photo! Congratulations on first place. As for luck, you know what they say "The harder I work, the luckier I get" :-)

I like your photograph. I think you captured the essence of music with the motion blur and unusual colours. Good work! This was one of my top favourites in the challenge.

Gary,

Amazing photo! I'd love to know how you did it. There are 40 images of the moon. Was each exposed for 10 seconds at 3 minute intervals? f/4 and ISO 400?

Really nice! There's a crisp, Canadian winter feeling to the photo. The colours are perfect.

Excellent photo, and one of my favourites in the challenge. I like the direct eye contact, and of course the snow adds an interesting element.

I see you've voted quite a few times. Thank you!

On photo Synchronized Landing in the Random Items - Challenge 6 challenge (2 comments in total)

Anisah,

This was one of my favourites in the challenge. I think it's an excellent photograph. The sharpness and the light are very good, and your timing was perfect to catch the pair like that.

Thank you for all the voting you've done. More voters = better challenges.

On photo Newbies in the Random Items - Challenge 6 challenge (1 comment in total)

Excellent photo in my opinion. I voted 4 stars, and was sure it would finish near the top. Maybe it was too small in the slide show mode? It's just 800 pixels wide. 1600 wide would have given it more appeal, I think.

I see you've voted quite a few times. Thank you!

Perfect for the challenge. The bread looks delicious. Good photo too - I like the action pose showing the baker at work.

On photo Bare Tree in the Abstract Tree Photo challenge (2 comments in total)

I have no idea how you did this, and it doesn't matter. I think it's an excellent image - and perfect for the challenge. It was one of my top favourites, and I thought it would finish much higher. Maybe some voters didn't look at the full size image. That's where it shines.

You again! I seem to be commenting on a lot of your challenge entries. This one of the birch tree was one of my favourites in the challenge. It was a four star image in my opinion.

On photo submerged reflection in the Abstract Tree Photo challenge (2 comments in total)

There were some excellent entries in the challenge. This was my favourite. You wrote that it was a leaf and a tree - but I see it as two stages of a tree's life - youth and old age.

I see you've voted quite a few times. Thank you for that!

Really cute photo! One of my favourites in the challenge. I'm not sure what expression that is - but it really makes the image special.
