I want to place two images side by side ( or over under ) and make one image.
So it uses only one image posting here at murga-linux, easier to view.

It seems a simple thing to do, but mtPaint isn`t intuitive in it`s operation.
Scoured Google but no help doing this.

Do you use two layers? But I think I`ve done it before much easier than that.

Easier to post the images an do it for you than tell you how. Earlier mtpaint was tricky. Now it is easier. Inkscape may be a try also.

Try this open two instances of mtpaint with the seperate images in each. Then selection> all then edit> export to clipboard system. Then import into the next mtpaint instance. Will elaborate if need more clues. {Typing via phone.}

You`re probably right, "Select All" works with the box thing,
but the "Export Clipboard to System" menu item is grayed out.

I`ve done this before, there`s probably a few ways to do it.

Load one image, copy it to clipboard, load another, use "Image->Resize canvas" to add space (at the bottom or at one side), and paste the clipboard into it.
What, exactly, "isn't intuitive" in this simple sequence?

wjaguar, Everything is easy for clever people Smile

Thanks for telling us. I have to try that one.
What I really need is to combine Man and a Horse so the mans body becomes the neck and head of the Horse. A kind of Centaur whatever.

Is that merging? I guess one have to clip out the arear where the neck and head are and then paste in the Man there somehow?

So far we have a consensus 4 out of 4 find it not intuitive. Still took me some minutes even with the correct instructions. And this is from computer savvy users. How do you think newbies will fare?

Well how often do people need to juxtapose pictures?

5 out of 5. Often enough to forget in the interval.

Many thanks to all the responders.

An interesting survey would be how many users have ever tried "man" anything. I'm guessing very few. Google searches have taken their place.
Yesterday I was trying to figure out window placement options for xli which was in the manuals I had previously deleted.

Yes indeed, I was trained on the old-school mainframes and the "man" command, though it pulled up some dense reading, was a constant go-to. So when I started getting into Puppy, I was distraught to see that the tendency is to just ask Google (or linux.die.net, who probably aren't as evil as Google) for everything, and not file a copy away for off-line usage (I'm very often not on the net.) Tttuuxxx posted a man.pet (which is hard to search for because it's such a small, common word and this forum is so sprawling) which did much toward recreating that old UNIX man page functionality. I'd always meant to work on it further, but scads of other projects cause constant procrastination in that regard..

If someone is willing to compile a FAQ on trivial use-cases of mtPaint, for those users who prefer googling to thinking, he is welcome to it. Myself, I only document the uses for which I myself would have needed instruction, were I not the developer of the thing Smile and obvious things like using menu commands for precisely what their names suggest are, just as obviously, left out.

BTW, from real-world experience: most people are well capable of quite amazing feats of understanding, if only there is a work to be done and no one around willing to do it for them. Smile

-= With best regards, Dmitry Groshev, maintainer of mtPaint =-
