    Hi Jon,
    Could you post the picture so we can have a look and then maybe give you our point of view?

    Hi Marcel, I'll try to take some pics later. But an example would be taking 2 pics of yourself in one exposure. Hopefully showing you have another handsome twin brother but the end result shows 2 "ghosts".

    for what you are trying to do, you would have to use a black background for it to work with double exposure. Otherwise, the grey or white over the first exposure will create the "ghosts" effect.

    I took mine in front of a dark brown curtain and got the same ghostly results. I've read black is the key.

    It didn't upload file was too large. Anyway, I did try with a black background and it did improve. Now with this limitation, does that mean this will only be possible thru post-processing in photoshop eg. layering?

    I think so. With multiple exposures, you have to remember that you are starting with a black canvass and adding light on to it. Once you have some light on part of it, the next exposure is not going to remove the light that was already there.
    I don't know what your previous experience was with double exposures, but maybe it sounds like you have done it in darkroom working with negatives. Then it is easy to add something on a white background, but once the paper is black, you just can't add no more to it. With photoshop, you are cutting and pasting a layer OVER the existing picture. That is the main difference.
    Does this make sense to you?

    To upload photos, you first have to resize them using a post processing program (photoshop, paintshop pro, aperture, lightroom). If you limit the size to 1200x1200 and save jpegs, you should not have any problems.
    There is only one way to learn: Keep trying.
