  1. (Optional): You can also remove red-eyes using the manual mode. For this, use the Brush Size slider to adjust the brush size, place the brush onto the pupil, and click it. The round brush will instantly remove the red-eye.

  1. Click “Apply” to save the edit.

5.   Blend 2 Images

(Comments) As we mention before, Picverse is a photo editor. It is not capable of very advanced editing techniques. Hence, in order to blend 2 images with this software, we can only use the ‘opacity’ tool. However, we can advise here that the image that you need to make opaque, be lighter in colour than the other. Try it out!

  1. To blend two pictures, click the “Insert Image” icon from the right-hand panel and tap “Paste an Image.” The Windows or File Explorer will open.

(Comments) i.e. Select the image that you want to blend with the current one and click “Open.”

  1. Once you paste the image, the “Image Settings” panel will appear on the right side of the Movavi Photo Editor.

  1. Here, the “Opacity” feature will do its job to blend the two images or add an overlay effect. So, move the Opacity slider until the image is sufficiently transparent.

(Tips) Besides opacity, you can adjust the corner, width, or shadow of your photo. However, we don’t recommend using these features if your main focus is to get a good blend.

  1. Click “Apply” to save the edit.

6.   Blur Certain Areas to Create Focus?

  1. Before you blur a certain area, you need to select it first. And that’s where the selection tools come in. Go to the “Adjust” icon and click open the “Selection Tools” section.

  1. Select the “Selection Brush” or “Lasso tool,” as they are handy, and mark the areas that you want to blur to create focus.

(Comments) For example, in the image below, we’ve used the “Selection Brush” and marked the forehead and mouth to focus on the eyes.

(Tips) You can also adjust the brush size and softness for better selection. Use the “Selection Eraser” to undo a part of the selected area.

  • Ctrl+S to save the edit
  • Ctrl+O to open the file explorer
