I really would like to use multiple overlays (two) in Photokey 3 Pro.
Reasson is that I need the overlay also for an extra logo file to place over all the 3 layers.
Do you think that's possible? If not, maybe in the next version?

The current versions of PhotoKey don't have support for additional layers, beyond the background, foreground and overlay, I'm afraid.

Hi there,
Do you think it's interesting to fix that in an future update?

Are there more users who like to see an extra layer for (logo)branding in a next version of Photokey?

Additional layer control is certainly something we'll be considering for future versions.

Keep in mind that you can also use text as an additional layer for branding. i realize this doesn't offer the logo option you mention, which would be sweet, but it does offer a workaround in the meantime.

I've accomplished more layers by saving and then reimporting the image. I did it with a Jpeg, but I'd consider using tiff, so the multiple editing won't degrade the image.


My first post here by the way.

Very clever solution, but unhandy when you have to produce a large amount photo's in a short time. But in some occasions it's a good alternative for the time being.
