How to use Photoshop or Picmonkey to layer transparent (PNG) images on top of each other

Below I am going to show you how you can use any of the PNG graphics I share with you in either photoshop, or for all of you who don't have photoshop, the wonderful FREE Picmonkey. 

To use them in photoshop, just open the graphic and the photo you want to use. Re-size it if needed, copy and paste on top of you photo & move around!

See? Super easy! 

You can tilt it, add text, change the opacity... basically the possibilities are endless!

After opening your image in Picmonkey, go to overlays and click add your own.

Your selected overlay should pop up and you can adjust the size, tilt it, or even change the color!

Super cute!

To see how to change the color of the graphics in Picmonkey, see this post HERE.

 Stay tuned for more super cute hand drawn graphics!
