Do you want to make overlay photos on iPhone without Photoshop? You can do it by Picsplay app and here’s step by step how-to for you. Picsplay is useful to make double or multiple exposure easily with more than two photographs.
Make Double Exposure Pictures
I have used Photoshop for more than 15 years. To superimpose a picture onto another (putting a picture on top of another) has been very simple almost only to Photoshop users.
Nowadays you can do it easily without Photoshop. And you don’t even need a desktop for it. Mobile apps make “Photoshop tasks” for everybody!
Picsplay is one of them, especially to overlay photos on iPhone. I think the most useful feature of this app is “superimpose” but it’s a kind of combined app with many other features. So let’s check what you can do by Picsplay.
- Good to superimpose (make layered) photos
- Professional photo editing features like Photoshop: distort, hue, white balance, curve & level
- Selfie retouch, filters & film effects are available
- Easily make your photos shaped like square, circle, etc.
Steps to overlay photos on iPhone
Then let me explain how to make overlay pictures step by step.
1. Download, open Picsplay and choose the first photo (door) by tapping “album”.
2. Tap the picture icon and select “multiple exposure” among the popping features.
3, 4. The second photo (sky) is overlayed on the first photo. Adjust the level of double exposure and select mode as you like.
5. Have text, sticker, frame, etc. if you want.
6. Save and cut the Picsplay watermark (crop again) if you don’t like. I used Repix app to do it.
My tip is, it’s better to have your photos a bit marginal when you import them into Picsplay.
It’s that simple. Overlay more photos is just the same. Follow the steps and leave a comment if you have any problem.
Free double exposure pictures
My final result of overlay or double exposure is far below. Since the app makes blending or mixing images easy, it’s more important for you to choose the photos. Imagine the final result like “sky in the door” and select photos for the final image. Double exposure usually looks good on fantastic images so visualize something fantastic for the result.
As you see the only problem is Picsplay watermark but it’s bearable with free version. You just can cut it like I did and enjoy double exposure pictures.
Besides overlay photos, this app is pretty useful if you want “shaped” photos (image No. 7-8, “shaped frame” feature popping up by tapping A icon on image No. 5). Since the feature is simple but usually not provided by other apps, I recommend you to try it as well.
