It amazes me how Facebook puts effort into the trivial. Stickers on photos? With a billion users, if 0.01% of people use this feature, that’s a whole lot of stickers showing up on photographs on Facebook. Agree?
Stickers have been part of Facebook for a while the difference is that you haven’t previously been able to superimpose them over photos or other content you upload. Now you can-yah!.
To demonstrate, I’m going to take a donut and sneak a little dog into it…
To start here is the regular status update box on Facebook
To add the image, long gone are the days to click on the camera. I’m going to just drag the image from my desktop onto the input box:
Once it’s uploaded, you’ll see a small square thumbnail of it below the text input area. Move your cursor over that and you’ll see the design’s changed just a bit:
The left button lets you tag people, while the right button, the paintbrush, lets you move to the image editor. Click on the Edit button.
Notice along the bottom there’s a rotate feature (handy!) and the Stickers button. Click on the Stickers button to bring up the Stickers window…
I’m going to choose a “Eating” sticker image by clicking on the appropriate button. Here are the resultant choices:
Given that the original image is donut, let’s go with the eating dog image in row two. To add that particular sticker to the photo, all I have to do is click on it, then it shows up on the image as you can see:
You can use the blue arrow to change the size of the image and rotate it (click and drag to move it around the circle), and of course the “x” lets you remove the sticker if you change your mind.
That’s it. I click on “Done”, add a text phrase and post it. The result is fantastic.
