Hi,

Try this function:

//Bitmap2 will be copied with a transparent color (TransColor) on Bitmap1 at Pos(pX, pY)
//Result is the combined bitmap
Function CombineBitmaps(Bitmap1, Bitmap2 : TBitmap; pX, pY : Integer; TransColor : TColor) : TBitmap;
VAR
 DummyBitmap : TBitmap;

Begin
 Result        := TBitmap.Create;
 Result.Width  := Bitmap1.Width;
 Result.Height := Bitmap1.Height;
 Result.Canvas.Draw(0,0, Bitmap1);

 DummyBitmap := TBitmap.Create;
 DummyBitmap.Width := Bitmap2.Width;
 DummyBitmap.Height := Bitmap2.Height;
 DummyBitmap.Canvas.Draw(0,0, Bitmap2);

 DummyBitmap.TransparentMode  := tmFIXED;
 DummyBitmap.TransparentColor     := TransColor;
 DummyBitmap.Transparent      := TRUE;

 Result.Canvas.Draw(pX, pY, DummyBitmap);
 DummyBitmap.Free;
End;
