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. Sometimes I wanted to put another element of a composite over my image to check position and perspective, or I wanted to have an image visible over my Lightroom capture so I could match it.

I couldn't find any software to do this, so I wrote it myself: Overlay2 for Mac and Windows is the result. It works with any other Mac or Windows software.
Use it over video capture or editing software, or 3D modelling software for a reference, positioning guide, preview or test.
