MERGE is a freeware graphic utility for overlaying two images in any relative position prior to saving the result to a file.

You can merge the two images in many different ways. No need to worry about relative positioning or image size/scaling differences.

Batch merge files from a directory with a single image file of your choice.
Useful to watermark all your images in just one hit.

Runs on: Windows Vista, 7, 10

Have a look at the Merge screen here



Here are the main features of MERGE:
  • Merge whole pictures with adjustable blending modes.
  • Rotate either or both 'source' images before merging them.
  • Batch Merge files with a single image - useful for watermarking your favorite images.
  • Type up or paste in text of any font, size and color and merge it with an image.
  • Smoothly blend in just part of a source image to the final result.
  • Copy back the merged result back to a "source" image and rescale or reposition it for remerging. This results in ineresting effects.
  • Generate surreal effects on the final image. (see below for examples)
  • Set any relative positioning of the images on top, side by side or overlapping. See an example of a quadrant merge.
  • The image formats for loading and saving are BMP,JPEG,PNG,TIF,TGA,PCX.


The screenshot example below shows many facits of MERGE such as simple merging, smooth blending, rotation and inserting of text.

Note that using "Change Source 1" (or 2) button and the "Current Target" button it is easy to merge more than two images or text in any combination.

Batch Merging of images.

The batch_merge dialog box here allows merging of a single (watermark) image in source 1 to be merged with all the files in turn from a seperate image directory which you select by loading any image from it, this will be source 2. (It is source 2 because it is loaded AFTER source 1.)

For each and every input file in that directory, an output file of the same name is generated in a new sub-directory called 'output'.

Relative positioning, scaling, merge parameters and brightness and contrast are all set up before running this command. If you don't like the result then simply setup the parameters again and retry. None of the originals are lost.

If the watermark image is text then a good tip is to set the merge method to 'greatest' if white text or 'least' if black text.


With MERGE you can smooth-blend part of a source image to the destination.

Here are two source images: the cat for source 1 and the dog for source 2 (it becomes source 2 as it is loaded after the cat.)

Setting 'Merge method' -> 'copy srce2 image only' and then blending the cats eyes only results in this image.

Surreal effects

There are several choices of effect: Blur, edge, emboss sharpen, soften

This example was generated by selecting 'emboss' followed by smooth blending of one source image against another.

"Articulate Effects"

These are another selection of surreal effects.

The image on the right is a colored pencil draw effect: click on it to blow it up

These images demonstrate an artistic brush stroke effect: again click on the right to expand it.

And again . . .


  • There are new surreal image generating features.
  • A new "highlight" feature that allows brightening or darkening of the image towards an edge or corner.
  • Easier way to adjust brightness and contrast.
  • More visual clues present of the state of merge particularly scrolling of both sources or an individual source image.
  • Now can generate a grid of geometric shapes (circles, squares, diamonds) for a single source image.
  • Now possible to load in only one source image. Useful to apply effects to one image only.
