[Inkscape-user] Blending one photo into another.

 [Inkscape-user] Blending one photo into another. From: john Culleton - 2012-03-10 19:36:19 ```Before I spend a lot of time trying the impossible: In Gimp it is possible to take two overlapping bitmap images (like photos) and blend one into the other using a gradient on the topmost bitmap? Inkscape has the ability to blend two vector objects in this manner. But what about bitmaps? If I vectorize the top image will that make it possible? (Unfortunately vectorized photos often come up huge.) John Culleton ```

Assign a layer mask to the top layer, and fill the mask with a gradient. Is this what you're looking for? -- Johan ```
