[Closed] Combine two photos

Post by darinb »

I have a folder with about a thousand images. I want to overlay these with each other so I end up with two-layered images.

In other words, I want to

Open folder
Select image.
Select second image.
Make the second image a layer in the first image so they look "double-exposed".

Then do that for every file in the folder. (using new images for both layers each time).

Seems like GraphicConverter does *everything*--just can't figure this one out. :)

(There is some flexibility here as the choice of images can be random or whatever. I can put them in different folders, we can "walk" down the file list as the macro progresses so file 2 becomes file 1 in the next iteration. Doesn't matter.)

Just to update what I am looking for:

I do not *need* the final result to be a multi-layer TIFF. It can be an already flattened file with the "multi-exposure."

Hey there,

I spent the day working on it and eventually figured out how to program it myself in Python (I'm a newbie at Python so it took all day).

Thanks!
