1 What is SolImageBlender?

  SolImageBlender is a simple Windows tool to alpha-blend multiple images of various file formats of 'bmp', 'jpg', 'png', 'tif', 'gif' and 'ico'. This tool can be used to combine images by specifying transparency parameter, sizing parameter, and, alignment parameter for each image and a background color for a blended image.

  • 2 How to use it

    2.1 SolImageBlender
    Run SolImageBlender program in your desktop, and the following window will be displayed.

    This window has a toolBar in the top area, which contains 'Open', 'Save', 'Blend', and 'Clean' ImageButtons,
    and 'imageListView' in the upper area, and 'imageView' in the lower area.
    The 'imageListView' shows a list of name of image file and blend properties.
    The 'imageView' is used to display an image of the image file selected in the listview, and a blended image.

    To add an image file to be blended, select 'Open' image button. Then a fileOpenDialog will be displayed, and select an image file from it.

    2.2 Setting Properties of Blendable Image
    To set properties of a blendable image, click twice on an item of the 'imageListView', and the properties of the selected image in the middle area and the image in the 'imageView' of lower area. See Figure 2-2.
    To change the transparency of the image, use 'Transparency setter' slider.
    To change the size of the image, use 'Size setter' slider.
    To change alignment of the image, use 'Alignment setter' comboBox.

    Please note that this free version cannot blend large image files properly. This is mainly because the current SolImageBlender event handlers for 'Transparency' and 'Size' sliders may take a few seconds to change the blend properties and create a new image for the large images.

    To blend images, set checks on items of the 'imageListView'. and click 'Blend' button on the toolBar. Then the blended image will be displayed on the 'imageView'.
    To change the background color of the blended image, select a color from the 'Background color chooser'.

    Note:The width and height of a blended image will be computed automatically by this SolImageBlender itself. They are calculated as the maximum width and height of the selected blendable images.
