About Overlays

Overlays are pieces of information that you can add on top of your slideshows. Currently there are two types of overlays in Showbooth Go: Title and Price.

The default behaviour for overlays is that they are shown for the entire duration of the folder, but it's possible to customize a few parameters in the settings file like the delay and duration of the overlay (globally or on a per-folder basis).
