Customize Your Twitch Overlay

The Twitch overlay maker is here!  You can use this app to create an overlay image that you can use with your Twitch stream.  Use the options, inputs, and text fields to make your overlay how you like it.  This is the second customizable resource from us, which will allow you to create overlays without the need for Photoshop, GIMP, or other image editing programs.

Some items may appear blurry because of auto scaling. This will not be shown in the exported images.

  1. Use the controls to customize your overlay.
  2. Right click the overlay area and select “Save Image As..”
  3. You’re done!  You can use this overlay in OBS or upload to any cloud based system.

This app will perform best on on monitors with at least 1920×1080 resolution.
