Help With Photoimpact 6

I'm using Photoimpact 6
Here is the problem.
Let's say I have a green pattern for a background.
I'd like to take a new picture of a car, and paste it onto the green patterned background.
However, when I do this the windows of the car don't blend in with the background.
HOW....can I hilight an area on the car, cut it and move it over the green pattern to make the green pattern come through.
Here is a link to the example image of what I'm talking about.
 You see how the porche windows are white and the background doesn't come through. HOw on earth (I assume using the lasso tool) do I outline the portion of the window in the car, and make it transparent for the green background to come through.
 I'm trying to make like an opening on the car, like a window for the underlying green pattern to come through.
 Does this make any sense ?

RE: Help With Photoimpact 6

I would try by first making objects of the exact shape of the forward exposed glass.  Then make the whole image an object so you can erase the rearward openings to allow the background to show through.  Then place the glass objects in their original positions and play with the transparency until the result was desirable.  Of course this is all theory so it may not look natural enough.  But it should work.

RE: Help With Photoimpact 6

I had to try it to see if it would work.  It was as simple as I hoped it would be.  The only problem is that the objects for the forward glass became a little pixelated around the edges and didn't blend in perfectly in the original positions.  I think this can be fixed with a little blending after all is merged to your background.
