How to stitch two photos?

I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I have two photos I'd like to stitch together. They are of me on the London bridge, 30 years apart. I'm traveling in the UK and I have my MacBook Air with iPhoto.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
May the Schwartz be with you!

quick easy way is to just open them side by side on the desktop and take a screen shot. not the best quality though, lossy, so not if you need for print.

if you have chrome installed and google+ you can open it there and get access to snapseed

Presumably you've got Preview on your Mac.

If you just want the pictures side by side you can do it this way - for the purpose of this exercise we'll assume each photo is 800x600:

Take a screenshot and open it in Preview.
Resize it to 1600x600 Tools/Adjust Size...
Open your London Bridge photos.
For each London Bridge photo...
  • copy the photo: cmd-a , cmd-c
  • paste on the screenshot pic: cmd-v
  • drag to required position
  • click outside the pasted photo to secure the position

Hope that makes sense - let us know how you get on

@Park Ping I thought I was the only one who used preview to edit. lol

In iPhoto you can compare both images side by side. Take a screen shot. command - shift 3

Since its only two photos you can also use Preview.

1 Open Preview - Edit - Insert Blank Page

2. Copy image 1 by highlighting it, and select copy.

3. Go to Blank page - Click on page - press command V

Repeat steps 2 and 3 for other image.
