View Full Version : Overlays

05-29-2008, 06:03 PM
I downloaded a paper today that is like an overlay and you are supposed to be able to add any of your papers to it to "make your own" KWIM? Anyway how the heck do you do this and have the pattern of the overlay show? Kinda like I have a sheet that is gray and looks like folded paper and you are supposed to be able to add a photo to it to make it look like the photo has creases in it. i only have PSE2. Can I do it with this? Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

If you put the overlay over the paper your want and then in the layers palette on PSE (I hope its the same on your version), change it from "Normal" to "Overlay" you should be able to see the bottom layer through the overlay. Does that make sense?

I was wondering the same thing. Thanks for the help, Stephanie!

Interesting! I'm going to have to try this! I have always played with the transparency of the overlay layer.
