Photo Fuse is a feature in Windows Live Photo Gallery that combines the best parts of two or more photos into one. This feature comes in handy while improving photos, like group portraits, where a person might look better in one photo than in another.
How to Fuse Photos in Windows Live Photo Gallery
Step 1: After you install Windows Live Photo Gallery, open the application. You will see thumbnails of all the photographs in your computer. Navigate to the folder that contains the photographs you need to work on. Select the pictures you want to fuse together and click on Photo Fuse form Create tab.
Step 2: Select the area of the photograph you want to fuse together. You can zoom in the photograph to be precise by dragging the picture while holding down the Alt key.
Step 3: Now finally select the photograph you think is the perfect replacement. Once the processing is done save it on your disk.
Note: The art of fusing two photographs is made as simple as possible but still you need to practice a lot before you can master it. It will take both patience and time before you start creating perfectly fused photographs. Also make sure you have ample numbers of photographs before you start fusing and make sure they are all taken at the same scene.
Photo fuse is a great tool to create the perfect picture by bringing together several shots and combining them into one flawless image. It’s actually an easier alternative to advanced tools like Photoshop that help you do just about everything with your images.
