How to make a picture collage:
Upload a photo, preferably a portrait of a person against a fairly neutral background to create the perfect double exposure effect.
Select “Add Photo” to add a second image. To avoid too many contrasting colors, it’s preferable to choose a black-and-white picture.
Adjust the size of your second image to fit it over your portrait. Reduce the opacity to make it semi-transparent.
Select the draw icon, then select the eraser. Erase all of the extra areas that go beyond your body in your portrait.
Experiment with different overlay modes to blend them in different ways and create the double exposure photography style you love.
