Photo blending app ‘Union’ now available for free through the Apple Store app


Apple is giving yet another iOS app away for free through its official Apple Store app. The latest giveaway is Union, the powerful image blending and editing tool, which is normally priced at $1.99. Here’s how you download it.

Union is a professional image-blending tool that fits right in your pocket and lets you create superimposed, silhouetted, and double-exposed photos on the fly. 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
