Double exposure technique in Adobe Photoshop

Double exposure is a technique in photography and image/video editing which is a combination of two exposures in one image. This technique brings interesting effects to the images that we use to combine in one image, in a way that combination of images makes a new story without losing the story behind each image.
There are different ways to make a double exposure effect in photoshop and in this easy to follow video in one minute we use the “Blending Mode” to create a double exposure. Other techniques for making a double exposure effect in photoshop are also taught by cherries.


  1. Open Adobe Photoshop.
  2. Open both the images you want to combine and put then one under the other in the layers panel.
  3. Better to have the underneath layer, the image with white background.
  4. Change the blending mode of the image in the upper layer from Normal to Screen.
  5. Using the Move Tool (V key on the keyboard), move the upper image in the canvas area to set it where you wish to.
  6. Now use the Layer Mask and the Brush tool while the upper image in the layer panel is selected to remove the extra parts of the image and get a nice exposure of your two images.
