Managing layers

The main interface of Union lets you touch each layer of your project to make edits. When you're finished, you can flatten it into one layer so it's ready to save and share.

Masking layers

The Mask layer lets you clean up the Foreground layer so the images look more natural together. You can touch the eye icon to show where you've erased parts of the photo (and find the parts you missed).

To help you get the right blend between images you can touch the icon in the top center. From there, experiment with the different types to get the best look.
