Downloading Overlays from the Overlay Library

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 mark any library overlays you don’t need inactive to make finding an overlay you do need faster and simpler.

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