How many layers are available for the use of overlays with Photokey2 and can their position be moved so one is behind the main subject and one is on top?

Why don't you try downloading the demo version here?
Then you can try it out for yourself, answer your questions, and get a feel for the interface?
FYI- there are some tech specs here,
but I don't think that they mention what you were looking for exactly.

In either version of Photokey, you can only have one layer of overlay. Altogether there are three layers possible: (1)the Background, (2)the Subject, and (3)the Overlay.

I can't find any overlay samples to try in the PhotoKey2 demo I downloaded. Where are they so I can search for them?
I created my own to test the feature: an overlay layer over a transparent background saved as a tiff. When I import it from my desktop into the overlay toolbar, it has a white background. How can I get rid of the white BG on the overlay that is transparent before it's imported?

Can you upload the overlay image or send it to support@Fxhome.com
so we can take a look at it?

I just did, on Ticket #GCM-185616. I am interested to find out what I'm doing wrong. Alex sent me directions on creating an overlay in Photoshop and what he said is what I had done to create the one that isn't working. The only thing I can think of is that I'm using a MacBook Pro running OSX 10.6 (snow leopard) which is a new release that some programs need an update for.

I just sent over a response that I think will solve this for you. I suspect it was a Photoshop setting that was causing the problem.
Basically, you have to tell Photoshop to include transparency when you save a TIFF file, in the TIFF Options dialog box.
