    allign text in two images

    Level 7
      I have two images with text that need to be aligned, see
      http://www.spinsister.nl/zandbak/FW.htm

      The last letter in the left hand image, half an 'e' ,should match perfectly
      with the first other half of the 'e' in the right hand image.

      I have tried pasting the images next to each other on a new canvas, but that
      makes the text dissappear, even after the png is saved.

      Can someone please help me?

          I'm not quite following you here. Is the text part of the bitmap
          image, or is it something you're inserting above the bitmaps? And why
          do these need to be separate images?

          Try this: Insert the two background images onto the same canvas, then
          use the text tool to put the text over the background.

          Maybe if you could post the .pngs and some context - the page where
          they will be used?

            While trying to do this, I realized my mistake: in my first attempts I had not
            selected all, so the text just didn't get pasted in. Things now seem fine.

            Thanks for your prompt response, as usual, Joe.

              I think we've all been there at one time or another. That's how those of
              us who answer questions know where to look...

              My pleasure.
