Is there a way to overlay multiple images using PL7 (not HDR, just simple overlay)
The only, unofficial, way that I know is to add the second image as “watermark”, but, apart from that, PhotoLab is not truly a bitmap editor.
Maybe usable for dust removal?
Anyways, all the necessary functions are in the watermark tool…except a possibility to add RAW as watermark image
Note that edits will only work on the original image, not on the watermark image…unless you export the combo and continue from there.
Thank you - that is where I landed yesterday but it is nice to have confirmation. I think I am going to turn to affinity. If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them (I really like your book/table pics
I use Affinity Photo for compositing multiple photos of the same thing (for instance, ground and sky when I’m doing night sky shots, combining tracked and untracked).
I use PL to preprocess all the shots with the same settings. I find it easiest to highlight both in the thumbnails window before making customizations, but there are other ways - or manual, then I export as TIFF - which I open with AP.
If you want to overlay images in AP, there isn’t a way to open an image, open another one then auto-align the two. Instead, you’d need to start out creating a new empty image “stack”. I hesitate to give any AP advice as I’m a total noob with that app - so apply salt.
BTW, AP ‘help’ notes that image stacks are intended for tens of images, not hundreds.
