Merging more than 2 images

The screenshot example here shows many facits of MERGE such as simple merging, smooth blending, rotation and inserting of text.

Note that selecting "Change Src 1" (or 2) button followed by the "Current Target" button it is easy to merge more than two images or text in any combination.

The merge process

For each and every target pixel at a given location, merge will take the pixel at the same location from the two images and merge them according to one of these selectable options:

You can adjust the weighting in percent between the two sources for the merging process. The default value of 50% denotes equal biasing between the two source images.

There are other options available where the 'else' statement is replaced with the background color.

These are global merging processes and usually but not always followed by a bit of local smooth blending at the right places.

Originating from two images these samples are in turn: average, darkest, brightest, subtract21 and subtract12. They have not been touched up with local blending.

average darkest brightest subtract21 subtract12

Batch Merging of images

There are three options available for batch merging:

In each case source 2 image files are always loaded from a directory to be merged in turn with the contents of source 1 however that is generated from one of the three options.

Relative positioning, scaling, merge parameters and brightness and contrast are all set up before running this command. If you don't like the result then simply setup the parameters again and retry. None of the originals are lost.

If the watermark image (always source 1) is text then a good tip is to set the merge method to 'Brightest' if white text or 'Darkest' if black text.

Blending

With MERGE you can smooth-blend part of a source image to the destination.

Here are two source images: the cat for source 1 and the dog for source 2 (it becomes source 2 as it is loaded after the cat.)

Surreal effects

There are several choices of effect: Blur, edge, emboss sharpen, soften

This example was generated by selecting 'emboss' followed by smooth blending of one source image against another.

These are another selection of surreal effects.

Upgrade from Version 2.7

Addition of a dialog box to allow accurate settings of size and positions of images.

There is a new option to anchor a corner or edge of an image that gives consistent positioning regardless of its aspect ratio. This is important when batch merging.

In the merge process there are new options: Most Colored and Least Colored.

There is a new "articulate" function.
