Can anyone suggest a graphics program (like PSP, Photoshop) that can
do vertical, horizontal, image-to-image, etc.. alignment of 2D images
(not 3D) ? And I don't mean for text either.

What tricks do people use to get perfect alignment and placement of
images, other than mirroring or zooming in and counting pixels?

Im not an artist, but when I do this stuff in Photoshop I usually pick a color thats prominent and make it transparent, then just slide the new one over the old and drop the transparency.

Thanks, I haven't tried that.

But, if anybody uses MSVC++ and is familiar with the resource editor and all of
its alignment options to create dialog boxes (centering, left,right alignment, etc.),
then this is what I would like to see in a graphics program for cut and paste
images. Sometimes it is just a drag to center something (or two or three) in the
middle of a new document, and having to check all four corners for equal pixel width,
when a simple centering command could solve everyone's problems.

(hmmm...if only there was a christmas tree message icon or saint nick..., do you really
want to default to a 1010101 binary icon rather than the standard posted note icon?)

If you are looking for a program to splice many 2D images of the same size into one file email me at zer@neo.rr.com and I'll send you my ResEdit program. Its a POS but it does the job and is a lot faster than doing it manually.

Perfect for the holidays. I wonder if it is safe to switch to temporary
icons for special occasions, and not break any image links when replacing it
with something else after the occasion has passed?

Zer, I don't really want to splice an image, just more control over the
alignment and placement of copy and paste images. When I say copy and paste,
I mean the menu commands in the program.

Alignment is pretty much up to the program you are using - most tend to paste the image in the middle of the image. If you're in an image manipulation program if you select the area to paste into, it will center the clipboard in the current selection. This gives a bite more control, though it's probably not what you want.
