Nice eh ?....one thing that springs to mind is that the Tulip Tree is a tree and that the Tulips are flowers !!...which is nice !!

Are there any botanical things in common between the two or are the only things in common , the names ?

Me wants to know cos me wantsto know.

 I do believe the tulip tree has very large similar blooms when it blooms.. This thread made me think of Tiny Tim!



Artist: Tim Tiny
Song: Tiptoe Through The Tulips
Album:
[" " CD]

Tiptoe through the window
By the window, that is where I'll be
Come tiptoe through the tulips with me

Oh, tiptoe from the garden
By the garden of the willow tree
And tiptoe through the tulips with me

Knee deep in flowers we'll stray
We'll keep the showers away
And if I kiss you in the garden, in the moonlight
Will you pardon me?
And tiptoe through the tulips with me

You need some photo editing software - it depends on what software you are using as to exactly how you do it.

I was using something called Picture Windows, although I also have Serif Photoplus, and have in the past used Paintshop Pro, although the more common one is Adobe Photoshop.

The first thing you want to do is create a mask for one or both of the pictures.  The mask is used to remove the unwanted background from the picture (that is what I used to remove the furniture and other background in the picture that contained you).

You then need to scale the pictures as appropriate, and simply merge or overlay them (most photo editors will use layers, so you simply place the two pictures in two layers, and then merge the layers - in Picture Windows it does it slightly differently, but has the same effect).

And voila, you have a composite picture.

I'll play with it and see what I can do. I have ulead photo so I don't know what else may be on here!!

Oh, I forget to also mention that if someone is sloppy when they take the original photo, like lopping the tip off the tree, you may need to stick a bit of the tree back on the top so that the tree has a proper top to it [:)]
