How to cross-hatch two images??
Image knitting. We'll put it that way.
I'm still sort of a beginner, but this must be an intermediate thing to do, regardless.

For example, if you had a black layer, and a white layer, how would you create an image that looked like this?

Preferrably without doing it the painstaking way of copy/pasting??

Any ideas??

Cool! That really helps, thanks! After a bit of playing around with it, I found this to work, also, even though it's a bit more of a round-about way:

Two layers (one for each image). Add Alpha Channel to top layer. Make bottom layer invisible. Show grid, snap to grid. Rectangle select boxes per row (saving total selection to a path). Clear selections to reveal alpha channel. Make bottom visible again and there you go!

I'll give your method a shot, and see how it works out. Sounds like it would give me a bit more flexibility.

Thanks again!

Holy cow. How have I never learned how to layer mask??! What a noob, haha. This function is almost critical to any serious photo-manipulation job! You can do so much with it! Thank you for opening the door for me. I almost completely abandoned my original concept, when I realized how many applications there are for layer masking.

Thanks again Ofnuts!!
