I know this is off topic and doesn't really belong in a DIY NewsGroup, but I
am at a loss as to know where to ask for some help and because you are such
a helpful bunch on here I thought you may not mind.
I have 6 pictures, all 75 pixels wide by 100 pixels high. I want to join
them all together in a row and create just 1 .jpg file.
Can anyone help please ?
I have PhotoShop and Paint.Net but I have never used these programs and I am
like a fish out of water.
Using bog standard (free) Paint
goto image >attributes and set it to 100 high by 450 wide
then edit>pastefrom to each of your bmp images in turn and move them
side by side until complete.
Then save as a jpg
You may have to open each image in turn and save as a bmp first, if they
The problem with this, I suspect, is that you are going to lose a lot of
quality. I don't have PhotoShop or Paint.Net but I do have Serif Photoplus
and PhotoShop will probably work in the same way.
So, open one image, then open another as well. Copy the second one and close
it. Paste it into another layer with the first image. You can then make each
layer smaller individually and move the second image to line up with the
first. Open a third image. Copy and close. Paste into a third layer. Make it
smaller and line it up. Keep doing this with each image. Then combine all
layers. Da Dah!
The last time I saw Serif PhotoPlus was at college - in 1993...
Photoshop will not lose any quality - nor will Paint for that matter.
The only way you'll lose quality is saving as a JPEG at less than 100%

I think you'll find it's moved forward a long way since 1993! I use version
10, and I believe there's a version 11.
My comments re quality were based on the (maybe incorrect) assumption that
converting to and from bitmaps to JPEGS might not be ideal. It was not a
comment about the actual program. But perhaps it's OK to do what Sue
Didn't mean to slate PhotoPlus - like you said it's moved forward - 93 WAS a
long time ago :S:S
Converting from bitmap to JPEG and back is fine if you know what you're
doing - or better still you've got some software that knows what it's
I was very tired last night - I didn't mean to say one method was better
than the other - in fact I'm pretty sure they'll give exactly the same
