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 XP, Vista, 7
Here are the main features of MERGE:
The screenshot example below shows many facits of MERGE such as simple merging, smooth blending, rotation and inserting of text.
Note that using Ctrl C and Ctrl V 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 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 the image on the far right.
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.
