Layering in PhotoPaint?

Layering in PhotoPaint?

Layering in PhotoPaint?


I am writing to ask if layering - placing one or more images on top of one another - is possible in Photopaint? I can't find anything in the Help file. Are there any good tutorials on this?

Many thanks


RE: Layering in PhotoPaint?

It sure is possiable, Paint calls them Objects.
Make sure window/dockers/objects is checked and you should see the object docker on the rhs of your screen.

The buttons at the bottom of the docker allow you to add new, delete, create from mask etc. You also have a opacity slide at the top along with merge mode.

When you open an image in Paint it is automaticly put in a background layer, if you want to edit this layer you will need to right click on the thumbnail image in the docker window and select create from background.

Hope that gives something to fiddle with.

Hello Cobrien11

Many thanks for your message.

I've saved your comments to my desktop and will
try it out in Photopaint. It's all challenging!

Many thanks for your time.

Best wishes
