- Twitch Overlay

If you’ve visited Twitch Overlay before, you’ll notice the place looks a little different. Not overhaul kinda different, but changes in places I thought necessary. The whole idea has been putting your journey as a visitor first, so I’ve made some quite important changes. Here’s a few of the bigger ones:

Combined PNGs and PSDs

I didn’t see a need to keep these downloads separate anymore, so now a majority (not all just yet) of instant downloads feature the standard PNGs, and the source PSD file in case you feel like attempting to edit anything on your own. It’ll be clearly noted in the download options whether or not your download features a source .PSD, so keep an eye out.

Download details

To save any surprises, you can now see on the right a full listing of every file included in a download, as well as the fonts used, and the size of the download.

Increased customisation options

I’m now offering customisation of profile graphics, as well as extensive customisation of stream screens. I’ll be looking to experiment with more variations of personalisation.

This is just the first round of updates I’m bringing to the site. Now a foundation is laid I’ll be playing with a few more ideas I have, including a much more efficient and functional free designs section, adding customisable logos to the streamer shop, and on some of the bigger downloads on the site I’ll be offering Deluxe Customisation – this will be like Professional Customisation on steroids, and allow you to request changes in shape, size, and arrangement for existing premade overlays. More info on that soon.

If this was useful, it might be worth checking out the rest of our blog posts. It's often the first place we announce site updates, and helpful streaming guides like how to use a twitch overlay or how to customise your twitch overlay .PSD in Photoshop. As well as other useful guides & tips for streamers setting up their twitch overlays, twitch alerts, or streaming screens for the first time.
