Combining several photos into one image may be simple for some people, but expressing ideas, feelings, or thoughts through the images you combine takes practice and some visual literacy. Adding a new object or image to a background is an easy way to create a photo that tells your story.
Here are some ways you can use it to combine photos what do you want :
How to Combine two photos to create split screen effect in Windows with MS Paint
There is no need to use expensive photo editing software if you only want to create split-screen photos on a PC because Windows has a feature of the MS Paint software which provides the tools to complete in just a few simple steps.
While photo selection may not really matter, the image you will use to create the split screen effect must have something in common if you want to create an image that truly communicates with the audience. Click on the MS Paint File menu and select only one of the two photos.
Chances are the photos you want to combine are different sizes, so before you start working on the second image, adjust the size of the photos you open. Click on the Resize icon and once the Resize window appears on the screen, select the Pixels option. Enter the new values into the Horizontal and Vertical boxes and make sure to check the Maintain Aspect Ratio box.
- Change the size of the background
To make room for the second photo, increase the size of the background by dragging the rectangle outward. Don’t worry about how much space you add because you can readjust the canvas size after you add a second photo.
Just below the File menu, you will be able to see the Paste icon, click on the drop-down menu located below the icon and select the Paste From option. The software will then offer you to select the image you want to paste from your hard drive. Once the photo appears on the screen, readjust its size and position to fit the first image and use the Rectangle Selection tool to remove unwanted parts from the split screen effect photo you just created.
How to Combine Two Photos in Windows with Photo Gallery
It is difficult to capture facial expressions and perfect poses, but Photo Gallery software allows its users to combine two or more images with similar backgrounds into one image. The Photo Fuse tool is fun and easy to use and allows you to combine as many photos as you want. This tool works best with photos that have identical backgrounds, and using an image with a different background will result in poor results.
Open Photo Gallery and find the folder containing the photos you want to combine. Hold down the CTRL key to select multiple images and then click on the Create Photo Gallery tab. Select the Photo Fuse feature and proceed to specify the area of the photo that you want to replace. After you highlight the part of the image you want to change, choose a replacement, and the software will combine the photos. Getting the perfect result may take practice so don’t be discouraged if at first, you fail to create an image you like.
- Combine two or more photos
The Photo Fuse tool lets you combine as many images as you want, but you need to make sure that each image you use has a matching background. Furthermore, Microsoft has announced on January 10, 2017 that Photo Gallery will no longer be available for download. While combining photos with this software is a quick and simple process, you may be better off using a more advanced photo editor.
