Computer Forums Question about blending Pictures (Urgent)

What I mean is this. Take these 2 pictures. Ok, look at the first map. You can see a key on the bottom..The light green is like 50 value. Ok, say I wanna merge these map values together, and create one map, but with my own colored values...So it says 50 is light green, and the second map yellow = 60..So say its green over Texas on the first map, and yellow over texas on the second map..That adds to 50 + 60 = 110 value.. so say those create a whole new map, where from 100-120 is orange. Since the 2 maps merged, it became the third map with an orange color..So im asking if theres a way to merge maps together, add them, and then it comes out one map, on value key colors I design...Or is this antoher programming langauge? Any help at all would be much appreciated. Thank you __________________ __________________

As to how to do it - I seriously don't know. Merging is one thing, colour changing with it is another - but organising your own colour scheme according to the mixed colour that comes out is just plain hard. Why would you want to? __________________ __________________ A Knight is sworn to Honour. His heart knows only Virtue. His blade defends the helpless. His might upholds the Weak.
