How to overlay images
Step 1. Download and install the Photo Editor
Download the installation file and install the app on Mac or PC following the instructions on your computer screen.
Step 2. Add an image to the program
Click the Browse for Images button and select the picture you want to edit. Or simply drag and drop the file into the program window.
Step 3. Add a photo to the photo
To superimpose one photo onto another, open the Insert image tab at the top of the program window. Then click the Paste an Image button, choose a picture, and click Open. The image will be placed on top of the background picture. Click and drag the new image into the desired position. To change the image size, just drag on the corner handles.
Step 4. Edit the picture
Depending on what you want to achieve, there are different ways to edit the image.
To blend two pictures together or add a texture overlay, you need to change the opacity of the superimposed image. You’ll find the Opacity slider in the right part of the program window. Move the slider until the picture is transparent enough and click Apply.
Whether you add an image with a transparent background or a regular picture, use the tools in the right part of the program window to edit it. Besides adjusting the picture opacity, you can also change the outline width and color, and add shadows. When you’ve finished editing, click the Apply button to save changes.
Step 5. Crop the image (optional)
If your two merged images are of different sizes or you want to crop unwanted parts from the merged picture, open the Crop tab and adjust the crop frame manually. You can also enter the desired number of pixels into the Width and Height fields or use the presets. Next, click the Apply button.
Step 6. Save the edited image
Click Save in the bottom right corner of the program window. Set the appropriate options – file name, format, quality, and destination folder. Then click the Save button.
Now you know the main ways to create an image overlay. You can download ready-made images with transparent backgrounds from the Internet, overlay and blend together any photos, or apply a texture overlay. You can even choose an object on a picture, make the background around it transparent, and then move the object to another picture.
