You would use image-editing (paint) software for this, such as Adobe Photoshop, Paint-Shop Pro, Corel Photo-Paint, etc.  If by "seamless" you mean taking individual pieces of various BMP files and placing them all onto one new graphic, there's some work involved.  Photoshop, the industry standard image editor, has some great features for this type of project.  Exact steps would vary depending on the particular images and what you're trying to do.

Hi DCS,
You said it correctly. I did a checkup on what this "Image Editor". To do what I intended , I need to look for Image Editing softwares which supports layers that enables images to be placed into or scanned into different layers as if each were a separate canvas. The bitmap elements can be moved around independently within their layers, and elements can be placed above or below each other temporarily to find the best design. When the final result is obtained, all the layers are "flattened" into one.
Thanks

Hello hhheng,

If you can afford it, I really do recommend Photoshop for this type of project.  Not only does it support layers as you mentioned, but also several different features for aiding in selecting an object (such as your flag or your moon) from one image and placing it in a new image, which can a lot of work in a project like this if your original images are photos with complex backgrounds behind the object.

Or even if you're working with more drawing-type graphics rather than photos, Photoshop has features that can make this sort of thing a lot easier.  

Good luck,
DCS
