Overlays are PicMonkey's version of stickers, graphics, or clipart that you can add to your photos and designs. This article will show you how to add overlays.

Adding a PicMonkey overlay

From the PicMonkey Editor:

  • Click the Overlays tab (the butterfly icon in the editing panel on the left).
  • Explore our selection of overlays, until you find one that you like.
  • To add the overlay to your picture or canvas, just click it.
  • Once the overlay appears, you can move it into place by dragging it.

You can find more overlays in the Themes tab.

To layer overlays:

  • You can add as many overlays to your image as you want.
  • If you add an overlay on top of another one and want it to appear behind the first overlay, right-click the new one and select Send to back. Other options include Bring forward, Bring to front, and Send backward.
  • You can also change the stacking order by clicking the Layers palette button, located on the far-left side of the bottom toolbar.
  • Click the overlay you want to move in the Layers palette, then click the arrows to send it forward or backward, or all the way to the front or back.
