Customer Question

I shot photos while accidentally having camera set to multiple exposures=2. Is there a way to separate the images into individual photos? D800.
JA: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: D800 about 3 or 4 years old
JA: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Not sure I understand your question. Nothing "popped up."
JA: Anything else you want the camera expert to know before I connect you?

Hi, I'm Russell H., Expert here at JustAnswer.com.

Basically there isn't any way to separate one 'frame' into two images, even if they were double-exposed, is the consensus I have seen on that subject.

Hi. My name is*****'m a camera repair technician with almost 30 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.

Most newer cameras have 2 settings to control the multiple exposure feature of your camera. One that sets the number of frames and another to tell the camera to turn this feature on.

Even if the camera were set to multiple exposure mode, you should still get all of the images you should get and probably followed by a blurred image of the same subject as you move the camera away from your eye. Did the camera capture these images?

Hi Rick.
Both settings you mention were on. Number set to 2. My hope is that the multiple images that were combined to create one photo can be extracted/separated somehow. If not in camera then perhaps with an editing software like photoshop? Seems to me that since this is digital it should be do-able but so far I cannot find a way to do it. I'm attaching one of the photos to illustrate what I have to work with.

On double exposed imagery, both images are contained within the same frame. It is not possible to seperate the images again after they have been recorded.
