I need help getting the background in place. I'm able to get the photo on the canvas then i try to add the background and it shows on the panel on the right hand side, but not behind the photo. How can i get the background onto the canvas?

Is the visibility box for the background turned on?

Thank you Axeman, but I do not see the visibility box.

Its a tickbox at the top right corner of each filter and tool in the toolbox, which turns its visibility on and off. There is a small square, and it should be activated. If it isn't, the background won't appear on the canvas.

I got it!! Thanks again Axeman. I think it was the type of background i was using. I imported another background picture and it came right in. Thanks

Aha. Glad to hear you got it working. What type was the background that caused you problems? And do I understand correctly that the original background you imported appeared in the Background preview pane of the import window, but didn't appear on the canvas at all? What was the filetype?

Yes the original background picture appeared in the pane but not in the background on the canvas. I downloaded a picture from some website but it just didn't work. Then I took a picture that I had taken myself which was a jpeg and tried it. It worked. I'm not sure what filetype the original picture was.

perhaps you downloaded a image that was so small that it was placed behind the subject shooted in front of the greenscreen
you could try to use the sliders to increase the size of the background.

That's a very good though, xtremed. Its quite possible that is what happened.

Hey thanks for the tip. I will remember this when I'm using it again. I never thought that a picture could be to small. This is good to know..
