All,

I am attempting to insert a logo using the image overlay effect.  The logo is coming in but it is stretched to fill the entire screen.  Any ideas on hoe to fix?

fore the overlay images,
you have to make an image equivalent to the output format of Lumion.
in the event of a logo, you can make a blank sheet with the location and the size you prefer your logo, and then apply it in overlay.

is very practical use overlays to make photo-inserts, or find your point of view on the existing photo.

To add one minor thing to what 3dmarius mentioned, and may be sort of obvious. 

Make the background of the image transparent, so it needs to be saved as either a 24 bit PNG with alpha or TGA.

Chromatic -plugin , and bloom , can have a tendency to bypass the overlay
i dont know if this is intentional ?

I think that would be due to the order in which the effects are added to the stack of effects.

For example:

If the Bloom is added first, followed by the overlay, then it will Bloom the scene but not overlay.

If the Overlay Effect is added then Bloom, the overlay is part of the final image to which the Bloom is then applied.

Yup, the developers confirmed that this is the case.
