Free Photo Editing site/software

HELP! I have a project I need to finish ASAP and I need to put 2 scanned photos together. What I scanned from was too big to scan all at once so I had to do it in 2 halves. I just need to be able to line up 2 pictures and get rid of the line between the two. DD16 was supposed to do it on Photoshop at school for me yesterday but she misunderstood my directions.

I have stuff that allows me to edit photos but nothing that lets me put 2 together and get rid of the line. Anyone know of something quick, easy and free I can use?

I don't, but you might find someone who does over on the Photography Board.

Do you have Microsoft Office?

Open Publisher or PowerPoint.
Insert both pictures into a blank page.
Use the corners to size/position as you want.
Click on Picture 1, then hover the cursor over the second.
Hold down the Ctrl key and then click Picture 2 with the left mouse button. Both pictures should be selected.
Let go of Ctrl, then right click the mouse.
Choose "Group".
Right click the mouse.
Choose "Save as Picture".

My DD14 uses a site called Picmonkey. I am not sure it will stitch photos.

I had done all of that in Power Point and in Paint but there was a line where the photos meet in the middle that I couldn't get rid of. That was the biggest issue I was trying to solve. I could get the photos together in a few programs but not get rid of the line.

I ended up sending the pictures to a friend. I downloaded a few programs but they either couldn't do what I needed or I couldn't figure them out quickly. I had to have this done earlier today. I didn't get exactly what I needed but it will work. Thanks! I will have to do this again but I have a year to figure it out!

Paint.net is really good. We prefer it over Photoshop.

Of course the best photo editing software is Photoshop, but it's expensive and there are GREAT free alternatives you can try, such us THE GIMP and PHOTOSCAPE:

Gimp download link:
toggle.com/lv/group/view/kl234296/GIMP.htm

Photoscape download link:
toggle.com/lv/group/view/kl54425/Photoscape.htm

My favorite is The Gimp, but you can give a try to Photoscape as well.
