Saving/printing overlaid graphic

I have 2 graphic images in wordperfect.  Either can be saved as a .wpg or Presentation
graphic.  The statistics program I used to produce them would not produce both
images on one plot so i saved them separately and overlaid them in WordPerfect.

The problem is that I cannot get them both to print, cannot select and paste both together,, etc.
Is there a way to combine these into one image so they print aat the same time?

You can use .wmf or .wpg files, although I've found that .wpgs are more reliable.

I've found no way to do this in WP. It is easily done with an app like Anouncements from Parsons, Printshop from Broderbund or Adobe photoshop.

You don't mean Paintshop Pro?  

What about if I regenerate the plots as .wmf files?  Is there a way to do it to .wmf?  

A list of applications is handy -- thanks.  We have Paintshop and an old Corel Draw and some photo apps -- Corel PhotoHouse, PolyView, Lview,  and the Corel and MS presentations programs.

Is there a name for the procedure I described of combining graphics?

In Announcements 6 you can open any number of pictures (wmf,wpg, jpg,bmp,tiff,etc) on a poster. Then you can take them 1 at a time to picture studio and render them "translucent" lighten or darken them and combine them any way you want to.

I take it that these graphics have a single color background? If so, your task is easy.

Open each in PaintShop Pro. Use the Magic Wand tool to select the BACKGROUND of the one you want to paste onto the other one. You will probably have to do a lot of shift-clicking to get all of the background selected. Then, once ALL of the background is selected, go to the Selections menu and select Invert. This will then select everything BUT the background. Then select Copy.

In the second graphic, go to the Edit Menu, select Paste, and in the pop-out menu select As a New Selection...  The graphic will then appear as a new selection in the second graphic. Place as you will, then save!
