Guide to making Celebrity Hugging Pictures
In this guide I am going to show you my way of creating hugging picture using free software "paint.net 3.36".

Take a picture of your character at the photo booth and save it to your PC and call it Picture 1 Click the image to open in full size.

Step 1: Cut out background on Picture 1
1. Open Paint.Net Program
2. Open Picture 1: File / Open

Click the image to open in full size.

3. Erase most of the background using the eraser:
Use the Eraser button Click the image to open in full size.located in the tools box on the left
Click the image to open in full size.

Erase most portion of Picture 1 by adjusting the brush width Click the image to open in full size.

Note: the brush width can be any numbers. The larger the number the larger the brush size.

Picture 1 should look like this now: Click the image to open in full size.


4. Erase the rest of the background using the Magic Wand :
Zoom in your picture by pressing this Click the image to open in full size..
Zoom in to 200% or 300% depend on your picture.

Click the Magic Wand Click the image to open in full size. located in the tool box, and

adjust the Tolerance percentage located on top Click the image to open in full size..

Note: the Tolerance % can be any numbers depending on your picture.
( The magic wand senses the cut off area. The larger tolerance %, the larger cut-off area is selected by the magic wand. The smaller tolerance %, the smaller area is selected)

Use the magic wand to erase the rest of the background: Click magic wand, click on the background and then click the scissor
Click the image to open in full size.to cut it.

If you made a mistake, you can undo it by clicking off the last action in the History menu box located on the right of your screen.
Click the image to open in full size.

Picture1 will look like this now:
Click the image to open in full size.
Save Picture 1: file / Save as/ save as type: paint.net (*.pdn). {( Very Important. Saving filetype paint.net means you want a transparent file. A transparent file means clear background and it is necessary for working on overlapping pictures meaning that you apply a layer (your character) over another layer ( Celebrity)}. Note, YOu must save the file as paint.net AT THE FIRST TIME. Let's say you forgot and saved the file using filetype JPEG. And later you open this JPEG File and re-save it to paint.net. The file is no longer transparent.
Picture 1 is finished. Step I is finished. Yay

Step 2: Cut out background on Picture 2

In my example, I have the horse as my picture 2
Repeat the steps in Step 1 on Picture 2

Picture 2 will look like this: and save Picture 2 under file type paint.net (*.pdn)
Click the image to open in full size.


Search the website and look for a nice background:
Such as this one & save it to your computer ( filetype can be PNG, JPEG, GIF...it doesn't matter)
Click the image to open in full size.


Step 3: Putting the pictures all together
1. Open the background picture in Paint.net

2. Resize the background

On the top tool bar, click Image / Resize Click the image to open in full size.

Adjust the width and height. The prefer size is about 400 in width and 400 in height.

3. Apply Picture1 on the background:
Open Picture1: Layers / Import from File


Click the image to open in full size.

Put picture 1 on the background:
It will look like this


Click the image to open in full size.


4. Apply Picture 2
Open Picture 2: Layers / Import from File


Click the image to open in full size.

Put Picture 2 on top


The file now will look like this

Click the image to open in full size.

To be continued on post #4

Continued from step 4 on the 1st post:
5. Adjusting the size of the picture
Click on the "move selected pixel button Click the image to open in full size." in the tool box, and then

make picture 2 (horse) smaller by dragging the corner towards the center. Or if your picture is too small, make it bigger instead.

And also move the hourse to the right place making your character hugging the horse.

6. Laying picture in a picture
However the horse now is on top of your character. You character is not hugging the horse. To fix this, click the "move layer down button" Click the image to open in full size. located on the lower right corner of the layer menu
Click the image to open in full size.

Now your character is hugging the horse and the file now will look like this

Click the image to open in full size.

Tips: You can turn the picture by
clicking "move selected pixel button Click the image to open in full size.", then
right click your mouse and hold it, then turn your picture, your picture will look like this:

After that, click Image/ Crop to Selection Click the image to open in full size.
