Have you ever come across an image with multiple pictures placed on top of it? Not collages, but images where single or multiple pictures are randomly added to the main image. This can be done by overlaying one picture on another. It’s useful for adding watermarks, logos, or simply combining images. In this article, we will explore two methods to overlay images on Android phones, including Samsung Galaxy devices.
Method 1: Using Samsung Gallery App
If you own a Samsung Galaxy phone, you’re in luck! You don’t need to download any third-party apps to overlay images. The pre-installed Samsung Gallery app offers a native feature to place one image over another. Here’s how you can do it:
- Launch the Samsung Gallery app on your Samsung Galaxy phone.
- Open the background image on which you want to add another image.
- Tap on the Pencil (Edit) icon at the bottom.
- The editing screen will appear. Tap on the Smiley icon.
- Choose Stickers from the options.
- To add a picture, tap on the Gallery icon.
- Select the photo you want to add.
- Crop the image if necessary, then tap Done.
- Adjust the position and size of the added picture by touching and dragging it. To delete the picture, tap on the remove icon.
- When your final image is ready, tap on the three-dot icon and select Save as copy to download the newly created image as a separate file. Alternatively, you can use the Save button, but that will replace the original background image.
Method 2: Using Third-Party Apps
If you don’t have a Samsung Galaxy phone, you can still overlay images using third-party apps. Let’s explore two popular image editing apps: Picsart and InShot.
Picsart allows you to add multiple images to one picture and provides various editing tools. Here’s how you can use Picsart to overlay images:

- Use the editing tools to further enhance the foreground pictures, such as adjusting opacity, cropping, flipping, adding effects, and more.
- When you’re satisfied, tap on the checkmark icon.
- Finally, tap on the Download icon to save the image to your phone.
InShot is a versatile photo editor that also works as a video editor. Here’s how you can use InShot to overlay images:
