    Does anyone know how to take two pictures and "overlay" one on top of the other so you can still see the picture in the background. I have GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) running on Linux. Trying to make up wine bottle labels.

    Thanks

    Pretty easy coming up with something in GIMP.

    What do you all think? Acceptable?

    Now that I got a basic understanding of GIMP I'm going to do the rest of my labels. GIMP is very powerful. I really like the gradient, blur, smudge and airbrush functions. I think this strawberry label came out better than the blueberry.

    Those are really pretty. It would be so nice to see bottles with those nice labels on your shelves, instead of a plain white label that says "WINE"

    Each of my daughters and daughter in laws are getting a case of assorted fruit wine for Christmas. So I want the bottles to be some what presentable. I'm giving these labels my best shot.

    Here's the Blackberry label. Meh... I might sharpen up the berries a little more IDK... Its one of those things you could spend a lot of time on tweaking.

    Raspberry lots of pink hues maybe a little overboard...

    I especially like the blackberry and blueberry labels. If you could sharpen the definition of the berries, that would be good. Perhaps more contrast? Decrease the brightness?
