Image Overlay allows you to combine multiple images in camera. In the exciting days of yesteryear… well before digitization… a special effect like multiple exposure really was something special – like special effort, special knowledge and often a special amount of time put into it.
Image Overlay combines two existing NEF (RAW) photos to create a single image that is saved separately from the originals; The results using RAW data from the camera’s image sensor are significantly better than photos combined in an image processing application.
Go into your retouch menu, select image overlay and select your first image when prompted. You will then be prompted to select your second image, adjust the opacity as desired, and then combine the two images. You can then preview the end result, giving you the opportunity to further adjust one or both images.
With an overlay, various information is superimposed on the current image. The overlay is usually set up within the camera’s web interface, which includes options to configure what text to display and in what format. Time and Date are popular image overlays.
Open your base image in Photoshop and add your secondary images to another layer in the same project. Resize your images, drag and drop them into position. Choose a new name and location for the file. Click Export or Save.

Nikon Z-series mirrorless cameras make double-exposure or multiple-exposure pictures a breeze thanks to the cameras’ electronic viewfinder. This is because you can now see a ghost shot of the previous shots in the viewfinder whenever you take a new shot, so subject placement can be more precise.
Video overlay is any technique used to display a video window on a computer screen while bypassing the CPU to graphics card to computer monitor chain. This is done to speed up video display and is commonly used by TV tuner cards and early 3D graphics accelerator cards, for example.
The most common form of editing is overlay editing. It works by obscuring what’s in the timeline at the position where you want to place that clip based on the tracks you’ve selected. Note that this changes the In and Out points of the clips near the overlay edit.
To put it simply, Photoshop overlays, as the name suggests, are basically just one image placed over another to add all sorts of creative effects – light, color, Texture, composite elements, enhancements… the possibilities are endless!
