Did you know that it is quite simple to place one photograph on top of another photo on an iPhone? And this may be done for a variety of reasons, such as adding a photo watermark, merging your image with another picture, or just applying a sticker on another photo. Thanks to iOS 17, the Apple Photos app natively supports this feature! Curious how to put a picture on another picture on your iPhone?
We’ve put together a mini-guide below on how to put a picture on another picture on your iPhone.
The ability to use stickers is, hands down, the finest feature that an iPhone can offer at the moment. Thanks to iOS 17, Apple has made it possible to natively layer another photo with a sticker picture and overlay it on top of the original image. That is so great, right?
Here’s how you can actually do it:
1. Within the Apple Photos app, open the picture that you want to use as the backdrop for the photo that you want to upload.
2. Tap on Edit from the menu at the top, then select the Markup icon from the menu that appears.
3. Select “Add Sticker” from the menu that appears after tapping the (+) symbol.
4. If the Sticker tab isn’t already chosen, you’ll need to pick it now. After that, select the picture you wish to add to the first picture by tapping on the plus sign () button and browsing through your image library.
5. The sticker or the photo will appear in the list of stickers that you have available. Simply tap on it to put it in the picture you’re working on.
7. To adjust the size of the photo, use the dots that are located on it. You may also modify the location of the photo sticker by holding it down and dragging it.
8. To bring a cutout over the photo, tap the Done button once and then tap it a second time. The updated image will be accessible via the Apple Photos app.
Putting an image on another picture on your iPhone is also possible with the help of a wonderful app called InShot. You may use this approach to get rid of the background from any image and then just paste it onto a separate image if the sticker or photo cutout tool is not supported on your iPhone.
Have a look at the steps below:
1. Download the InShot app from the App Store and launch it on your iPhone.
2. Select the photos you want to add by clicking the Photos button in the Create new section. Next, select New on the next page.
3. Pick a photo to use as the backdrop.
4. After that, choose Stickers from the menu, and then hit the Gallery button.
5. At this point, you have the option of either adding a conventional image or making a photo cutout, in which case the application will take out the backdrop from the foreground picture.
6. When the photograph or photo cutout appears in the Imported area, touch on the picture you want to add to the background picture, and it will appear on top of the background image.
7. To resize or move the photo, either use the arrow with two sides that is located on the picture itself or drag the image itself. The next step is to choose the checkmark symbol located at the bottom of the screen.
8. Finally, to save your results, hit the Share icon that is located at the top of the screen.
You probably already know this, but did you know there’s a great shortcut for your iPhone that lets you overlay a photo on top of another picture? Well, thanks to a Reddit user, we can now enjoy the new feature.
Here’s what you have to do:
1. Download the Apple Shortcuts app from the App Store and launch it on your iPhone.
2. Next, head to the Overlay pictures shortcut link, and then hit the Add shortcut option.
3. The Apple Shortcuts app will display the Overlay pictures shortcut shortly after it has been created. You have the option of running the shortcut from within the Shortcut app itself, or you can run it from within any other program by sharing the picture with the Overlay image shortcut.
