Hi Amrit,

There are several post disaster DigitalGlobe images (as well as other
providers) on the Google CrisisMap
(http://www.google.org/crisismap/2015-nepal-earthquake), and they can
now be traced in OSM.

Choose the image you are interested in the CrisisMap, using "zoom to
area" and toggling images on and off, and note its name.

URLs are listed for each name in this wiki page (that includes the 22
images online as of now) :

To get URL for iD, replace "zoom" by "z" in the URL for JOSM given in
the table.

For example, for Kathmandu 1 captured on Apr 27, URL for iD is:

To change background in iD, choose "Background parameters" (shortcut is
"B"), then "custom" (or maybe "personalized" ?), and copy/paste the URL
for iD in the dialog box that opens.

Best wishes,
