maybe someone smarter then me can answer how I do this. I want to make a custom graphic for my website. I have the basic graphic and I have duplicated it, and each time changed the color via filter to get a slightly different one.
Now the hard part. I want to take these and layer them one on top of the other so that it gives a blured image effect, like it moved really fast and there is more then one actually there (thus the different colors). like stacking card in your hand while playing poker
I tried using the layers feature in my paint program, but it did not show all the objects once I had them merged.

What paint program are you using?
I know that can be done in Photoshop

I was using photostudio 5 that came with my scanner

You might be better using something like (don't laugh) GIMP – it's a free image editing package and should be able to give you the right effect. gimp.org
It sounds like you'll need to give your image a transparent background too, to be able to see all the layers once they're merged.

Give it over here, and I'll beat it into submission. I've got Photoshop and I'm not afraid to use it.

Dooh! your right the backgrounds are not transparent. I don't do enough of this stuff to remember how to do it properly
Thanks Wyatt I'll pass them on to you
