What is Double Exposure Effect?

Double Exposure is a technique where 2 images are overlapping each other to create an interesting and unique effect. It is often called multiple exposure effect where 2 or more photographs are overlapped. This technique comes from DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera and it is used by photographers for several years. Recently it is becoming more and more popular because graphic designers are loving this kind of photo effects and spreading them a lot.

The effect looks like one or two images are sitting on a base image and creates a ghost or foggy type of effect. This brings a uniqueness to an image and now several methods and techniques out there for everyone to create double exposure effect easily.
