    There are many programs to let you do this. They range hugley in price. Ulead photoimpact is a nice cheeply priced one that can do this. ulead.com .

    If you realy serious go for adobe photo shop at a heafty price. adobe.com .

    There may even be some free software but I have not looked for any. The two mentioned do a lot more than merge pics. take a look and see what you think. I belive they have demos to DL.

    try the gimp for a free alternative, you open one image, and open the other, copy the second into the a new layer in the first image, then erase around what you want gone.

    photoshop will do this as well as photoshop elements, I thin kyou can get a free trial version, it might not let you save it but you can always to a 'print screen' and then crop it in MS paint.

    Google you question and there are a million different ways to accomplish this task.

    Paint.net is another free program to play with for multi layers. Chris

    If you have access to Photoshop, you need to learn about layers selection and masking.

    See here.

    I know I'm late for this thread but there's a free program called PhotoStitch. It's made by Canon and I got it when I bought one of my Canon cameras..... great little program... here is a shot of Yankee Stadium that I used with PhotoStich:

    sorry for taking up this wide area
    This shot is a stitch of 6 photos put together by Canon's PhotoStich. You can do vertical/horizontal stitching or both! and here's where you can get it free:
    http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ProductCatIndex1Act&fcategoryid=101
    1. hit the EOS (SLR) CAMERA SYSTEMS picture
    2. hit the EOS 30D Digital picture
    3. hit the DRIVERS AND DOWNLOAD tab
    4. hit the red lettered DRIVERS/SOFTWARE under Drivers and Dowload
    5. this will open a new window where you scroll down to the PHOTOSTITCH windows update!

    and you can use this with any photos that are jpgs! at least that's what I use it for. It should/might work with other formats.

    Nice stitch on the second pic. It is not always easy to hold the camera at the same angle when taking the different shots. Its all trial and error. Also keeping the same zoom or distance can be difficult. The second one was done nice. Not able to see the overlaps.

    You can even make out Boog's Bar-B-Que pit down there, Nice Pics.
    That program does a good job, now if you could just photoshop me back to Baltimore for a couple of games I'll buy the beer and the Bar-B-Que.
