I've been trying to figure out how to layer an image on top of another, then erase any part of the second layer that I don't want, revealing the first layer underneath it.

For example, I have an image of an empty roadway. I have a second image of a Yamaha R6 riding down a racetrack. I want to put the R6 on the racetrack.

I've tried layering the image of the R6 over the image ofthe roadway, but I can't figure out how to erase the rest of the image of the R6.

I've looked online for tutorials, but I'm not sure what to look for because I have no idea what you would call what I'm trying to do.

I would really appreciate some helpfrom any of you that use GIMP. Thanks in advance!

Note: I did a search and found a thread asking the same question, but the answwer wasn't given. He was told to use the fuzzy select tool; that's not the correct tool. I need to slap layer 2 on layer 1, then erase everything from layer 2 that I don't want, yet still show layer 1 underneath what I erased from layer 2.

I think it was druid who started a thread a while ago where he photoshopped himself with his paintball marker into a picture of a swamp. That's what I'm trying to do, put the R6 on the roadway and blend the shadows and things like that.
