I'm having trouble putting a ford emblem (blue and white),on a chrome access panel.tried with image on black and second image as a black/white alpha,but i'm doing something wrong.It,s not working out.What is the best way? (scott)

without knowing what is not working it's a little hard to help :)
Has the emplem it's own (complete black)alphamap? If so, save it without alpha or disable the alpha in the imageeditor. Same with the b/w image.
Is the image visible without the alpha image?
How do you apply the alpha?

First, I think the mask should be inverted.

Second, the mask should go on the layer above the image you want to use and it's blending mode set to Alpha.

I think that should do it.
