Superimposing images

I've had several request, on and off the blog, asking how to superimpose images. Be aware this is not my expertise, but I'll try to explain it as simply as I can.


That's the starting point.
  • First you need to open two images in photoshop. (They won't be together.)
  • Resize them to be the same size.
  • Copy one of them.
  • Click the other photo and paste your second image in. It should completely cover the other image in a new layer. (Now they're both together.)
  • Slide the opacity bar until you can see both images.

  • The move tool allows you to position them.

Hope this helps...


  1. Wow, I never thought of doing this. Not sure I'd want to know how far off I am! Thanks Susan.

  2. Wow... Thank you!!!
    If I every get Photoshop again... Used to have it... lost it... now I'm too cheap to purchase it again.... I will definitely refer back to this tutorial.
    It is very clear...
    I so appreciate this!!

  3. Thank you for sharing Susan. Maybe this will help me with faces.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this information. I am always wanting to learn how to do more things in my Photoshop.

    I hope you are having a wonderful summer. I have been so busy getting ready for two shows and several trunk showings coming up so I am working like a madwoman!


  5. I don't have Photoshop but I sure wondered how you did this. One of these days!

  6. You are a clever girl. I keep meaning to buy photoshop but I am just too mean it is so expensive.

  7. You can do the same thing with The Gimp free to download.
