Blending in MS Paint!

Don't have those expensive graphics programs? No problem. You can still make a decent blend in MS Paint! First, open Paint 2 times. I will refer to them as P1, and P2.

In P1, paste the first image you're going to use. I'll be using this: User posted image

Now, you'll need a black and white checkerboard to cover the picture. You can get one from here: User posted image

Paste the checkerboard over the picture. See the two boxes that now appear on the bottom left of the screen? Click the lower one. This makes everything that is the same as the background-color transparent. If you don't get what I'm saying, look here. User posted image

After you've pasted the grid on, you should end up with something like this. User posted image

Now go to P2. The second picture I'm using is this. User posted image

Change the background color to black. To do this, go to the very bottom of your screen where all the colors are. Right-click on the color black. It should be like this. User posted image

Now, paste the image from P1 to P2, making sure the second box: User posted image

is clicked. Your image should now look something like this: User posted image

Ta da! It's kind of blended :D. Now add fancy texts and decorations. Here's my finished product:

The thing is that you can't use this as the answer for blending everything though.
