  • Overlay2

    What Overlay2 does I run a photo studio in London, and I was looking for software that would enable me to make a semi-transparent floating window on my computer. I wanted to be able to open any image to use as a floating positioning guide over the actual image that I'm shooting. I use Adobe Lightroom for image capture, and I wanted to be able to float the art-director's layout over my photo in Lightroom, to check that my shot was a good fit.
