BONUS! STICKERS

I’ve included some halloween stickers that can go on any photo and you can place them wherever you wish. You can download them all here. Included stickers are:

  • “Happy Halloween” in Orange, Black, and White
  • Black Bat
  • Two spiders
  • Two pumpkins
  • Cornucopia

If you wish to import your own assets as stickers, the first thing you need to address is to make sure that the background is transparent (like shown below). If your background is not transparent, you can remove it using Remask and here is a great tutorial on removing backgrounds. HINT: All the stickers I have provided already have transparent backgrounds.Topaz Labs Texture Effects 2: Happy Halloween StickerAfter you are sure your image has a transparent background, click Add Adjustment and choose Double Exposure.

I created a new category called stickers. This will keep everything a little more organized. You can do the same if you want. All you have to do is click the Add Category icon in the bottom left and type in your new category name.
