    In late 2009 I came across a forum discussing picture manipulation.  Someone gave specific directions on how to composite two pictures side-by-side within the basic Paintbrush application in Windows.  I did not copy it off and have never been able to find it again.

    Can anyone offer direction on this?  I'm only interested in utilizing Paintbrush for this specific project.

    Thanks! smile

    There is a very much easier way to do this now.   Just download the free Picasa from Google, it allows you to touch up, crop, use effects, and make collages from various photos.   All with simple keystrokes.   Sharing is a breeze with sharing features, the one I use for HubPages is export to folder on computer which automatically resizes the photos for uploading and preserves the original quality.

    Try it, you will love love love it and it is so much easier than paint or draw, which I used for years with eBay.

    It also automatically finds all the photos on your computer and leaves them where they are, just locates them for you.   Adjusts camera setting light, exposure, etc.  automatically with a single click.

      The link is a sample composite photo that I put together using picasa in about a minute.   I thought I could put the photo here for you to see, but I must have done something wrong in the formatting, I used [img][/img] but it did not work.   Anyway if you check out the link, you will see a photo that is a composite pretty much done with no fuss just a couple of clicks.
