Adding an Image Overlay in Setup

Autosoft -

As part of Autosoft's Inventory Management product, you can add image overlays to your vehicle images to brand the images for vehicle syndication and digital merchandising. You can upload multiple overlays and select one as a default. You cannot create the overlays in the Autosoft DMS, but you can easily upload any overlays you may have saved on your computer. In addition, Autosoft's Inventory Management product is equipped with a library of overlays and watermarks for your immediate use. You can download the Overlay Library and upload the overlays you wish to use. See the Knowledge Base article, "Downloading Overlays from the Overlay Library," for directions on downloading the Overlay Library. 

Note:  Autosoft's Inventory Management product is subscription-based. You must be enrolled to use Inventory Management and access these setup features. 

Step 1. Click the Setup Application button in the left navigation panel. The Dealership Information screen will open.

Step 2. Click the Vehicle button above the Dealership Summary Card. A drop-down menu of options will open.


Step 3. Select Image Overlays from the menu. The Image Overlays page will open. 


Step 4. Click the New Overlay button in the upper-right corner of the page. The Vehicle Image Overlay pop-up will open. 


Step 5. Use the Overlay Name field to type a name that will allow you to easily identify the overlay. 

Step 6. If you wish to set the overlay as the default, click the Default Overlay toggle from No to Yes. The selected option will be blue. 

Note:  You may only have one default image overlay. If you already have an overlay set as the default, when you mark a different overlay as the default, the default setting will be removed from the previous default overlay.

Step 7. You can upload an overlay in two ways:

  • Drag and Drop: Open the file containing the image overlay you wish to upload. Click on the image and drag it into the Vehicle Image Overlay pop-up. 
  • Uploading: Click the upload area of the pop-up. Your computer's file explorer will open. Use it to navigate to the location of your overlay. Select the overlay and click Open. The overlay will appear in the pop-up.

Step 8. Click Save and Close
