Union is an elegant image blending tool that lets you create superimposed, silhouetted, and double-exposed photos. Here's how it works.
1. Load a background image, solid color, or transparent layer
2. Load a foreground image, solid color, or shape
3. Efficiently erase areas of the foreground image using Union’s palette of intuitive, user-friendly tools
4. Adjust the position and size of the foreground image to reach desired composition
5. Make color adjustments on the background and foreground so they blend seamlessly
6. Save your work in full resolution and share your work with friends
Also included in Union is Pixite Source, a free resource for professional quality images, textures, and overlays that you can use in your edits. Union invites professionals and hobbyists alike to explore image blending and photo editing.
What's New in Version 1.5.3
iOS 9 - Fix for foreground not showing correctly when using a transparent background.
Union is so easy to use and works great. I was using another popular layering app that would only allow the background photo to be square, and the overlaying image also had to be square. You had to have the overlay positioned exactly where you wanted it before you imported it. A real pain.
Union allows any image size, and you can make adjustments in brightness, saturation, etc. The overlaying image can be any size, AND you can move it around, change its size, even tilt it! SO much easier!
The last few images you combined are saved in the app so you don't have to start from scratch if you want to go back and make changes. That's a very convenient feature.
I am extremely happy with Union and use it all the time. A big Thank You to the developers! 😘
Just amazing! And quick dev response!
(**UPDATE--- they fixed the ios9 issue quick and easy. Thanks! Now I can continue to use this one app instead of three others to present graphics pitches to clients.
Thank you so much for delivering such an insanely terrific app!
Maybe a blur feature so as you layer images they can be a bit out of focus as they are further away and clearer as we get closer.
But this is still an awesome image building app and I use it constantly to make design ideas for my clients and bosses.)
I always had to wait to be home on my desktop to do Photoshop stuff. Most apps don't accept transparent png files or you have to paint/erase every pixel yourself. But FINALLY this app has the magic wand selection tool and can select entire areas at a time.
And the flatten function means many many layers can be added (one at a time but it's fine because you really only need to work on one at a time anyway).
Use this app first, then Strip Designer, you can build amazing pages and images.
Having so much fun with this app!
Excellent intuitive joy
Apple's iCloud remains a painful joke, which shows when trying to access those pics from within this app. But the app itself is such an easy joy to work with, I'll deduct no stars. I simply use a workaround: save the iCloud image to the device, then access for editing. Union is everything we expect from a stellar photo editing app: super intuitive, easy photo manipulation during the combining process, with all EXIF data of the main photo retained during export. It quickly muscled its way into my top 5 tools, joining PhotoGene, SnapSeed, Handy Photo & (an older version of) iWatermark. Thanks dev, well done.
