Double exposure is a photographic technique that combines two images into one. In the past, we taught how to create double exposures in Photoshop using a simple technique. However, there are actually many different ways to do this. With this kit from SparkleStock, you can create better double exposure in half the time.

Instructions

To use these actions, simply create a document with two layers. Your foreground should be the top layer and if you’re trying to achieve one of those trendy double exposure photos, you should use a backlit photo. For the background, you can experiment with a variety of textures or landscape photos but it’s best to use an image that’s dark.

Once you’ve picked your images, simply play the “Play All Effects” action and let it run. When it’s done, you’ll find all the effects in your History panel. Finally, you can enable the Gradient layer to add a modern gradient effect. The kit also contains some premade gradients that work well with double exposure photos.
