Fitting Images to Canvas
Hi..
I've got 3 different images and I need to line them all up on one canvas, so that they all fit on that canvas. The purpose is so that I can draw lined that 'meet ' accurately. How do I get these images to fit on the canvas..Do I increase the canvas size, if so how?
Any help would save me a lot of hassle. Been trying this for ages. Confused
Thanks
Raif

RE: Fitting Images to Canvas
Looking at this, Resizing the canvas is the general solution, which I would go for, but again it depends on the images.

Are they all the same size? in which case Filters-> Combine -> Filmstrip with all the 'options set to zero' can work as a one stop solution.

If different sizes, load the largest first, then the others as 'as layers', resize canvas, start moving layers. I have done this with maps and it can be memory intensive so save your work frequently.

Rich..
Thanks for your helpful comments and suggestions. I did a canvas re-size (that worked) then I'm finding the images are in layers...So I'm doing them a a layer at a time....a little tedious, but I'll experiment...As I'm writing this I'm wondering why I'm trying this at all for what I need Idea .. It'll come right in the end.
Thanks for your time
