So you’ve dabbled in digital planning, purchased some adorable digital stickers, and are now stumped as to what to do next. What is a GoodNotes sticker sheet that has already been cropped? What is the best way to use individual PNGs? In GoodNotes, here’s everything you’ll ever need to know about digital stickers!
DIGITAL STICKER SHEETS THAT HAVE BEEN PRE-CROPPED
Pre-cropped sticker sheets, are encoded specifically for GoodNotes. This implies that those files can only be opened and used in the GoodNotes application, but they may be used on any device that has GoodNotes installed.
If you’re not familiar with pre-cropped GoodNotes sticker sheets, they’re essentially a sheet of digital stickers that you can lasso and copy and then paste into your digital planner because everything imported and pre-cropped. If you wish, you may also do this in split screen mode. If you can’t lasso a sticker individually, make sure “Images” is toggled on under the lasso. If you’re still having trouble, it’s possible that the file isn’t genuinely a goodnotes file. Remember it should end with .goodnotes.
PRE-CROPPED STICKER SHEETS IMPORT IN 2 WAYS
There are two ways to import a pre-cropped sticker sheet. Number one, if you downloaded through Safari, go to Files > Downloads > find the file that ends in .goodnotes and share it with the GoodNotes app from there. The second method is essentially the reverse of the first. Inside of GoodNotes, go to the main screen’s + icon > import from, and then find your sticker sheet’s .goodnotes file.
WHAT ARE INDIVIDUAL PNGS AND HOW DO I USE THEM?
Let’s look at some more uses for digital stickers that aren’t limited to pre-cropped sticker sheets. The original, individual sticker files are the first option. Here’s an important tip: Transparent backgrounds can be encoded using PNG. If you use JPEG stickers, for example, the backdrop will be white. Because PNGs can have backgrounds, they can also have white backgrounds, however, PNGs are utilized as picture file types for transparency. Individual PNG sticker packs are frequently zipped. On the iPad, you may simply tap to unzip them. If you like, you can save these to your camera roll. I propose keeping them in files or moving them to your chosen file management system if you have one. You may divide the screen and select the sticker you want to use by dragging and dropping it. If you have something stored in your camera roll, you can use the picture tool in the GoodNotes toolbar.
