    What is a good way to blend the edges when putting two pictures together?
    Like dragging one onto another and fading the top one a bit so the bottom
    one shows through. Composite. It would be obvious it's 2 pictures put
    together but not have a direct line (or circle) showing the edge of the top
    one down through it. I've seen many ways of doing this but all kind of vague
    like clone stamp (on low setting) or erasor (on low) Like play around with
    the tools till you find something that looks okay...I havn't tried it lately
    and now feel I know more tools, and maybe the healing brush would work?
    Just kind of blend in the edge of the top photo into the bottom one once
    the pictures are put together and the opacity adjusted so the bottom one
    shows through.
    Probably something like extract or taking out part of the background in
    the one going on top might work, but I'm thinking something more simple,
    once the pictures are put together and adjusted so they both show.
    Awhile back someone asked me if I could tell her how to do this, she has
    Paint Shop Pro, but I figured it out with that, and for awhile we were
    making them and sending them back and forth. Neither of us ever figured out
    how to blend the edges of the two pictures together in a good way.

  3. That's pretty vague. Dis-similar images, one image as in panorama?
    Large value for the 'feather' would do it either way. Other tricks for pans
    come into play, including matching tones and levels.
