Crown your cat! Or, mustache your baby. Label it, logo it, and embellish it. Think of overlays as sophisticated clip art; we’ve got a feast of them in the Overlays tab! This video primer will make a beginner proficient and an expert more expertly.

- how to resize, both proportionally and along one axis only
- how to work with a two-color overlay
- how to work with an overlay that offers hue-shifting
- how to add your own image as an overlay
- how to merge overlaysto the background if you have several overlapping ones
- how to flip and rotate
