Transparent TImage ??? - VERY IMPORTANT FOR ME

I joined two images in one TImage component with the properities Draw and StrechDraw, but I need that the second image to be transparent with the background of the first image.

Thanks,

Bruno

    Try to make the colors less intense (MOD operator) and then add those values to the first image (AND operator). This needs to be done on a pixel for pixel basis, since Delphi lacks statements, which can do that for you.

    Thanks for the help, but I can`t understant like this. If you could write some code I will be very gratefully.

    Thanks anyway

    Here's an sample pseudo-code based on a single pixel:
    [code]
    Image1.Pixels[X, Y] := Image1.Pixels[X, Y] OR (Image2.Pixels[X, Y] div 3);
    [/code]
    It reduces the intensity of the Image2 pixel by 3 and then adds those values to the Image1 pixel. It's untested and it might not work as well as you planned. I made a mistake in the initial answer, since reducing the intensity requires the DIV operator and adding uses OR. In this case the color white ($FFFFFF) becomes gray ($555555). You might wish to fool around with the constant 3 to get the best results. It might also be necessary to transform the Image2 into a grayscale image instead of a colored one. I've left out several intermediate objects between the Image and the Pixels.
