I seem to have for

gotton the selection for blending an image from one picture onto another

picture so it looks part of the same.

Like a collage but without outlines on each image.

I recall you could adjust it so the image could be more or less invisable on the main picture.

Hope this helps.

Paul,

Try this:

  • File>new>blank file of appropriate size and resolution of pictures
  • Position the images with overlap
  • Add blank layer between these two
  • Access gradient tool

                Linear gradient

                Foregrouind to transparent

                Normal mode, opacity=100%

                Be sure transparency box is checked

  • Draw gradient left to right within the overlap area

Hi,

Tried it but couldn't get it to do what I wanted. It basically split the

picture where part was gone with a black fill in. Couldn't make add on extra

image appear which I lassoed from other picture.

Again, this is what I want to do. Maybe I am still missing something. Sorry.

Call up two pictures on the photoshop screen.

Then take one of those pictures and lasso part of that picture,IE a face.

Take that face and move it over to the other full picture.

Then try and blend that image into the existing one. Like a transparent

setting or such.. Like an overlay but blended into the picture without

lines. A control to make it blend in or stand out more or less.

This is basically what hatstead said, but with pictures:
1. Position the 2 layers with an overlap where the blend will occur.
2. Add a blank layer between the 2 layers, and group the top two.
3. Set Gradient tool options: Linear Gradient, Foreground-to-Transparent, Normal Mode, Opacity 100%, Transparency box checked.
4. Draw a gradient, left to right, within the overlap area. The length of the drawn line determines the amount of blending. In this example I drew the gradient from the left edge of face 1 to his right eye:
gradient6a.jpg

Important!  Be sure to draw within the overlap or else the pictures edges will show through.
Here's the result:

Paul,

Perhaps this is what you are after:

http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1tSuOnpRn6zjQsDQl0Ksqh1d4ZW6UB1

  1. Make a selection with one of the selection tools. I used the selection brush tool
  2. Go to Layer>new>layer via copy. This will put the selection on its own layer. Shut off the visibility of the other layers
  3. Press CTRL on the keyboard + left click the layer thumbnail of the selection on its layer to make it active
  4. Go to Select>refine edge, and in the dialog you can adjust with the sliders, especially the degree of feather
  5. Go to Edit>copy
  6. Open the picture to which you wish to add the selection
  7. Go to Edit>paste
  8. Access the move tool and position the added selection
  9. I reduced the opacity of this layer to 59%

One last step to the original method

Go to the first image, right-click for the options and choose 'create clipping mask'. That's when you'll see that image shifted a little right in the layer window with a small arrow pointing downward.
