01 COPY AND BLEND

Open the dou­ble_­ex­po­sure01 and 02 start files. Grab the Move tool and drag the 02 im­age up to the tab of the other im­age and then down in­side the im­age win­dow to copy the layer over, then go to the Lay­ers panel (‘Win­dow > Lay­ers’). Click the Blend mode drop­down at the top and change it from Nor­mal to Screen.

02 FINE-TUNE PO­SI­TION­ING

Dou­ble-click the lower layer to make it ed­itable. Use the Move tool to al­ter the po­si­tions un­til both lay­ers are aligned in the way you want. Press ‘Ctrl/Com­mand-T’ if you need to re­size or ro­tate, and use the Crop tool to re­move messy edges. Fi­nally, make any tonal ad­just­ments you like — here, we’ve de­sat­u­rated and added blue.
