    How do I layer Photos?

    Any Way to layer 2 photos using Picasa or Paint? I don't have photoshop.

    Basically trying to add a mask on top of a face, but can't get it to copy just the silhoutee of the mask without the white background.

    Any help would be great.

    Thansk,

    Thansk,
    I used GIMP to screw around with some pictures- lets you free hand whatever outline you want to copy.

    Paint .Net is another free alternative.

    I don't really want to freehand. Is there a way it will copy everything but the white background?

    Paint doesn't allow for layers. It's too simple of a program to handle it.

    Best way would be to use GIMP. Free Photoshop-esque program for image editing, including what you're doing.
