In today's post, I thought I would share the technique used to overlay the picture of me over the background. Although the video and examples below use a different background picture, the technique is the same.
Step 1: Select pictures to combine.
Step 2: Open the Pixlr photo editor.
Other photo editors that have similar capabilities to Adobe Photoshop will will also work. For some of my banner editing, I used the PS Touch app (Adobe) on my iPad.
Step 3: Insert the background as Layer 1.
Because I store images on Flickr, I selected Open Layer from URL and pasted online location of the image.
Step 4: Add a second layer.
This is where you will add the second (foreground) picture - where erasing the background occurs.
Step 5: Select the wand tool.
Click on the area you want to make transparent (in my example, the white part of the image).
Step 6: Click on Edit and Cut.
This should delete the background of the top image.
Step 7: Adjust the foreground image.
Step 8: Save your new image!
