    Does anyone know of a program please, preferably freeware,that allows for

    Drag'n Dropping bits and pieces of other pics. onto a page, to make a whole

    pic. that can then be saved ?

    I have Photo Filtre but it does'nt seem to allow for the above, only to open

    one picture.

    Kind Regards.

    Hello,
    IrfanView will do.
    Open a pic. Select another pic and copy it. Go back to Irfan. Drag a rectangle then paste the new pic inside it. Select another pic. Go back to Irfan. Select another rectangle and paste the new pic inside. Repeat as many times as needed. Save.

    Thanks Mrk.,

    It sounds good, but can you expand the explanations slightly please, I just

    can't quite get a hold of sentences 2 to 4 yet.

    Kind Regards.

    GIMP is also a free app that has the same capabilities of Adobe Photoshop for free.

    Hello,
    Better explanation:
    Open two instances of Irfan.
    In one, load the picture or background that you want to paste all those little images, crops, portions etc.
    In the other, open one after another the images you want to paste.
    Once you open an image, just copy it (Ctrl + C). Then in the Irfan with your background, using your mouse pointer, drag a rectangle of your desired size and then paste the image into it. You can repeat this as many times as you like and eventually save the picture.

    paint.net is yet another alternative but it does need .net framework, if that bothers u.
