Image Overlay

Image overlay combines two existing NEF (RAW) photographs to 
create a single picture that is saved separately from the originals; 
the results, which make use of RAW data from the camera image 
sensor, are noticeably better than overlays created in an imaging 
application. The new picture is saved at current image quality 
and size settings; before creating an overlay, set image quality 
and size (

0 77, 81; all options are available). To create a NEF 

(RAW) copy, choose an image quality of NEF (RAW).
