Is there a way to take the silhouette of this hand, and an image of fire and replace the black with the fire?

I've been trying to figure this out for the past few hours.

Not in snagit. Here is a quick and dirty. If this is what you are looking for, you need a photo editing program

Well... There actually is a way to do it using SnagIt.

You would need two images. An image of the fire, and the silhouette image. You then flood fill the background of the silhouette with perhaps gray, then flood fill the hand with transparent. It would look like this (I did this using SnagIt.



You then find and open a fire image in SnagIt. After that, you then layer the silhouette image on top of the fire image. Then flatten it all.

Once the silhouette hand looks like fire, you then flood fill the outer area with transparent.

Cheers... Rick :)
