Tuesday's Tip - Stitching Photos Together...I Cheated

Did I cheat?  I'll let you decide...

So most of you have seen me fix photos before on my blog.  I use Serif PhotoPlus X2 to do photo editing and have had some great successes with it.  I love it.  It was cheap and it's effective, but I really like being taught how to use things.  Sadly, there's no class to teach me how to use PhotoPlus. Just a lot of hard work, instruction book reading, and swearing....a lot of swearing.

I'm sure my program has a way to stitch together photos, but I haven't bothered checking it out because I've discovered a really neat trick.  Many of you probably know this trick already, but just in case you don't I'll let you know my little cheat...I use Power Point.

I took these two images below and lined them up on one Power Point slide until they matched flawlessly (or almost flawlessly). 

Then I selected both images at once, right-clicked, and selected "save as image".  Simple and done.

So what do you think?  Did I cheat by taking the easy way out?
