Blending Two Photos Together

Can you believe that photo fuse with Windows Live Photo Gallery is available for free for the mere home user. Now you can really create a great photo without having to employ the services of a professional. I am absolutely stunned at what Windows live photo Gallery can do, especially when it comes to photos fuse.

I really never thought that blending two photos together with Windows live photo fuse would be so incredibly easy! My 10 year old daughter could easily edit a photo like a professional using this fantastic free software. Of course there is Google’s Picasa which is also free picture editing software but it sadly does not include this feature. I often use Picasa to batch resize photos but for this tutorial we are using Windows Live Photo Gallery.

In this tutorial I am going to show you how to use Windows live photo fuse to blend to pictures together. I am going to use a family photos as an example. We all know how hard it is to get people to look the same way at the same time. All I have to do now is take a few quick photos and simply swap and change the best looking bits of the picture to form a great photo.
