How To Download and Use Overlays

Modified on: Mon, 19 Apr, 2021 at 1:23 PM


In EasyWorship, you can add overlays to your slides.  Mix and match backgrounds, titles, and elements to create your own custom announcements, title slides, and much more. 


Overlays have a transparent background, so you can layer them on top of other elements and backgrounds for a more custom design.  Overlays are available for purchase and also available for free with a Premium subscription on our media store and downloaded directly into your EasyWorship resources.
