    Are these shapes you've drawn in Freehand or bitmaps you've placed? If
    shapes you can give the top image a lens fill that is transparent. If it
    is a bitmap it's a bit more complicated.

    Both images are bitmap. I am using FreehandMX or FreeHand 9

    There are a couple ways to do that with bitmaps but both involve using
    Photoshop. And if you have Photoshop it's much, much easier with better
    results to blend two bitmap images there and then bring the combo image
    into Freehand.

    Overlap the two images. Select the top image. In the Object palette, click
    the Add Effect button and select one of the Transparency options.

    Are these CMYK images that you intend for CMYK printing, or are they RGB
    images for inkjet printer or web images?

    FHMX's RGB raster effects work fine for RGB output. For CMYK color
    separations, I recommend that you use Photoshop and import a flatted TIFF to
    FHMX.

    Flatted - I like that. In fact I prefer it to flattened or flatulented.

    Oops. My bad. Is a TIFF with extra layers an inflated TIFF?

    I read that as "flattered" but that's probably because of the accent.
