Two photos in Paint

Is it possible to merge two photos (or side by side) in Windows 7 64 bit Paint?

Any help much appreciated.

hi pc inept 24, and welcome to sevenforums,

no, it is not possible in mspaint - it's a very basic program and can only deal with one image at a time.

you'll need something a bit more sophisticated, like paint.net

simple tutorial for what you want to achieve:

1 - open the first image in paint.net

2 - increase the canvas size, so there's a blank area for picture 2

3 - import picture 2

4 - place it where you like.

a better tutorial, with pictures, can be found here

yes, yes you can, but it's quite difficult to do so. Sorry to prove you wrong mickey, but you can.

firstly, open up 2 versions of paint, 1st one is for the first image and the second one is the second image.

open the image you want on the left first, this will look like this:
Two photos in Paint-paint-2.jpg

im using 7 forums for example.

now on the 2nd paint window, open up the other image that you want on the right, now on the first paint window, you need to resize the work area, otherwise the images won't fit in that space, so resize it by dragging the bottom right corner of the white workspace to a size that's bigger than the 2 images together.

now go back to the 2nd window and click on select > select all, then click cut, now open up the 1st window and paste, drag the new image to the desired position and resize the white workspace back to the outline of the two images otherwise it'll look like this :
Two photos in Paint-paint-3.jpg

hope this helps

Since it took me forever to find where it was, I thought I'd show you. The use transparent selection is so very useful so many times.

This is done basically with the same method described by Mickey megabyte.

Send one picture to paint first > in the paint window, use the cursor and " stretch " the side towards the right side to make room for the next picture > go to the next picture folder > right click at the 2nd pic > Copy > return to Paint window > top left, click Paste > move the 2nd picture to the open slot > now you have 2 pic in one.

Thank you all for your comments and advice.

Glad to say I have succeeded in placing two photos side by side with your invaluable help. And this for me (the name pcinept is not accidental!) is quite an achievement.

Thank you all once again.

In the old paint versions you can go to the Image menu and change the Attributes, which allows you to adjust the picture by the pixel dimensions. Basically like cropping but you can enter in the exact dimensions of the picture in pixels that you want. Is there any way to do this with the new paint?...
