So you want to combine multiple images into a single image? All you need to do is A) open one image, B) Select Place from the File menu to select the second image that you want to place on the first. If you want to put them side-by-side, for example, then you may want to use Image Size (in the Image menu) to make the image wider before you place the second image.
Hi Ben - I'm not trying to put one on top on the other, I was hoping to drag one image in and then drag the second image in right next to it (side by side) and then save it as a single file. When I select 'Place' it places it on top of the first image. Is that the only way to combine multiple images - one has to be on top of the other? Thanks, Jim
After you place you can drag what you placed. So, here is what I recomend:
- Use Photoshop to resize both pictures so they are the exact same size (unless they are so already). You can also crop as needed, for example if one was shot closer and one further and you want both faces to be a similar size. Either way, when you are done, make sure both pictures are the same height and width.
- Then use Photoshop to open the picture you want on the left.
- Use the Image Size option (in the Image menu) to double the width of the image.
- Then use Place to bring in the second image.
- And yes, you can select each of the images to move them so they are perfectly aligned.
That should do it.
Thank you Ben for stepping me through it. It turned out great!
