The Foto Blender / Mixer app is an editor that creates photo overlays on Android phones. The result is obtained from the merging of images capable of presenting the double exposure effect. The free tool is available on Google Play and works with files sent from the gallery or photos captured on the spot, with the smartphone’s camera. Users can use more than two images in the assembly, in addition to setting the level of blending and transparency to find the ideal combination.
Those interested also have options for cropping and lighting to adjust the image as they wish. When finished, it is possible to share the result of the montage on social networks and messengers, such as Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp. It is worth mentioning that the service applies a watermark with its logo in the corner of the figure. Check out how to create a photo overlay quickly and easily on phones with the Google operating system. The application has no version available for iPhone (iOS), from Apple.
