Step 1: Upload a Photo

Choose a photo that contains a subject from your gallery or the integrated stock photo libraries.

Adjust the size of your image and fit it over your background by dragging one of the corners upwards or downwards to resize it. 

Step 5: Apply the Double Exposure Effect

That’s the most exciting part! Click on Double Exposure in the left panel and select the blending mode in the right panel. I chose Multiply for this edit. Move and resize the second layer, then hit the apply button.
