I would like Lightroom to be able to do Tethered Capture with Onion Skin layer for creating composite images. This would allow for a layer to be viewed over a background image in a reduced opacity (adjustable) just to make sure that perspectives are correct. I don't want to create a real layered PS style document, just display over another to make sure it's the right perspective and such before moving forward.
Adobe, would you please add this to a future release???
Lightroom has this feature, called Image Overlay.
You will need your "Onion Skin" overlay created preferably as a PNG type file with transparent areas. (Without transparency the overlay must be reduced in opacity to see the image below.)
Select the Onion Skin Overlay [Ctrl+Shift+Alt+O] or Menu>View>Loupe Overlay>Choose Layout Image. The overlay can be re-sized, and hold Ctrl to adjust opacity with the 'scrubby' adjustment below the image.
With Loupe view active, and camera tethered, as the images import you will see them with the Overlay in place.
Ctrl+Alt+O will toggle the overlay Visible/Hidden.
Thank you, very much!! I had no idea that feature was in Lightroom!! It works great!
