for step 6 click hereNow the exciting stage. Take the photo and import it into your Pages document. Next drop in Santa's cap.
As you see there is a white backgroud around the cap. We need an alpha image, with no background (or transparent background). That's where the Instant Alpha tool comes in. It is under Format menu. Or, depending on how your Pages are customised, in the tool bar.
Select the cap, choose Alpha Tool and your cursor turns into crosshairs (little plus sign). Drag it over the white background several times - and presto, it becomes transparent. Hit return to save Alpha's work.
When the cap is roughly in position, resize it or the photo, or both to make it 'fit'. Try flipping the cap from left to right in Metrics Inspector. If you have two people in the photo, you may want the pompon pointing in opposite directions, use flipping to achieve this.
To rotate the cap, press Command and drag one of the 'handles' of the selected image.
When you are satisfied with the results, save the file - and let's see what we can do next.
