An overlay superimposed on images during tethered capture, or retrospectively, using the Overlay tool to aid composition can be included during processing. A previously prepared transparency file (e.g., a PNG saved with a transparent background) can be rendered as a part of the image for proofing purposes or when processed as a PSD file, included as a separate layer. This is a useful option when you want to share both the image and layout as a guide with the production team, for example.
- Select the appropriate recipe from the Process Recipes list. The recipe is then highlighted in orange, or silver when focus has moved. When multiple recipes are to be selected for processing, the following selection will have to be made for each recipe.
- In the Process Recipe panel (located under the Process Recipes list), select the Metadata tab.
- Under Workflow, deselect the Overlay checkbox to exclude the transparency file from processed images. When selected, the overlay is rendered as a part of the image. When the variant is processed as a PSD, the transparency file is included as an individual object in a layer that can be edited later in Photoshop.
- Selecting the option will automatically save the choice to the recipe
