Cropping and Adding Images to Another Image

Posted on 2011-10-11

I have an image of two dogs.  I also have a image of the background that I would like to be in the background of the first image (I cannot get the dogs to be in that area.  Also, one of the dogs has lupous that attacks his nose so it is not black with that cobblestone appearance.

I am wanting to have that background on one of my images and the dog's nose "fixed" in this image.  Is something like this possible with the right software / know-how?

    Absolutely. It can be done, of course with Photoshop, but it can also be done with the free program Gimp.

    As you may guess, it's not something that you can do the moment you open the program, but it is an excellent way to learn the program.

    If you would like, upload the images here and we will take you step by step through the process.

    Thank you!  Sometimes the answer is just yes.  I wanted to make sure it was doable before I dove into this too much.  Thank you!
