Merge two photos on PC

If you use a PC with any version of Windows installed on and you want to learn how to merge two photos by placing them side by side, the first thing you need to do is take the measurements of each image and, if necessary, modify them.

Then select one of the photos you want to merge with the right mouse button and select the item Property from the menu that appears. In the window that opens, click on the tab Details and note the size of the photo specified in the image properties list (ex. 500 × 400).

Now, do the same thing for the second photo and, if there are big differences in the size of the two photos (especially in terms of their height), resize one so that it matches the size of the other.

To resize an image you can use Paint, the program available “standard” on all Microsoft operating systems thanks to which it is possible to draw and make simple changes to photos and images. To start Paint, all you have to do is press the button Home, to type paint in the search field that is shown to you and click on the first result in the list.

Now that you see the Paint window on the Windows Desktop, select the entry apri from the menu Fillet to select and open the image on which you intend to go to act then click on the button Resize and skew attached to the section Image located on the top menu bar (if you are using Windows 10 or Windows 8 / 8.x) or click on the menu Image and then on the voice Attributes (if you are using Windows Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP).

In the window that opens, put the check mark next to the item pixel, type in the new dimensions in width or height to be adopted by the photo (in the fields Horizontally e Vertically) and click on your button OK per salvare i Cambiomenti.

Once you have two photos of identical (or nearly identical) size, open a new window of Paint and select the item apri from the menu Fillet to open the photo you want to be left in your collage. Then click on white square located at the right edge of the photo and move it with the mouse to the right in order to create the necessary space to insert the other photo in the Paint window.

Now, open the second photo to be placed next to the one opened in Paint with any program for viewing photos and copy it by selecting the item Copy from the menu Modification or by right clicking on the image and selecting the item Copy from the menu that appears. Once this is done, go back to the Paint window, click on the button Paste attached to the menu bar located at the top (if you use Windows 10 or Windows 8 / 8.x) or presses on the menu Modification and then Paste (if you are using Windows XP or Vista) to paste the second photo next to the first.

To place the two photos side by side in Paint, all you have to do is select with the mouse the second image just pasted and move it to the right of the first one you had previously opened. To perfect the work, you can also help yourself with the directional arrows on the keyboard.

When you are satisfied with the result, you can save your collage by selecting the item Save with name from the menu Fillet by Paint. Obviously, you can use the same procedure, acting in height instead of width, to join two photos vertically and not horizontally as we have just seen.

Merge two photos on Mac

If you have a Mac and you are interested in understanding what needs to be done in order to merge two photos I suggest you resort to the use of Paintbrush. If you have never heard of it, keep in mind that it is a free application for OS X that closely resembles the Paint program available for Windows operating systems, both in terms of functionality and interface.

To be able to merge two photos with Paintbrush, the first thing you need to do is download the program. To do this, click here so that you can immediately connect to the main web page of the same and then click on the item Downloads placed on the side and then on the link Paintbrush 2.1.2.

Now wait for the download procedure to start and complete then drag the program icon from the folder Download to that Applications of OS X. Then double click on the program icon and wait for the window of the same to be visible.

Then fill in the fields Width e Heigth specifying the size of the image that will contain the photos to be merged then click on the button OK. If necessary, you can also use the available presets by simply clicking on the menu Preset and selecting the solution you think may already be suited to your needs.

At this point, presses on the menu Fillet and then click Open ..., select the images you want to merge and click on the button OK to open them in Paintbrush. Afterward, click on the tool Selection attached to the Paintbrush toolbar and trace the outline of the image you want to stay on the left when you go to join two photos. Then click with the left mouse button on the photo and select the item Copy give the menu that comes mostrato.

Proceed now by clicking anywhere in the image to be used to contain the merged photos and select the item paste to paste the previously copied photo. Finally, carry out the same procedure for the other image and once pasted drag it to the right in order to place it next to the first.

Now, click on the entry Fillet attached to the menu bar and then select the item Save As…. then type the title you want to assign to the image, the position in which you want to save it and the format you prefer to use then click on the button OK.

Now that you've finally managed to merge two photos with Paintbrush, use Preview to refine the final result obtained. To do this, double-click on the image saved using Paintbrush, press the button Selection tool placed at the top and trace the outline of the two merged images to remove any excess edges. Finally, press the button Cut out. If you can't see the Selection tool presses the button Show editing toolbar.

You can also use the other editing tools attached to Preview to add text, adjust the color of photos, add borders and so on.

Once you have the desired final result, simply close the Preview window to automatically save all the changes made directly to the current file.

Unire due photo online

You need to merge two photos but instead of using special computer programs you prefer to use specific resources available online and accessible directly via web browser? If the answer is yes then I suggest you use Pixar. This is a great web service that offers a more traditional approach to image editing by presenting an interface very similar to that of Photoshop and desktop photo editing software.

To use it in such a way as to be able to merge two photos, click here to connect to its home page and then click on the item Create a new image. Then type the size of the collage you want to create and click on the button OK to access the worktop.

At this point, select the voice Open image ... from the menu Fillet and select the two images you want to place side by side, then select them one by one (using the key combination Ctrl + A on Windows or cmd + a on Mac), copy by pressing Ctrl + C on Windows and cmd + c on Mac and paste them into the collage pane using the key combination Ctrl + V on Windows and cmd + v your Mac.

Proceed by going to resize the photos so that they can be tiled correctly. Then select the level related to the first image from the box located on the right side of the screen and go to the menu Modification then click Free transformation to resize and move the photo. Repeat the same operation with the second image and that's it.

Finally, remove the excess part of the image using the tool cutter and save your collage on your PC by selecting the item Save ... from the menu Fillet on Pixlr.

Once saved, the newly created image will be saved in the folder Download of your computer (if you have not made any changes to the default settings of the browser you use).
