Of course, taking the perfect shot is only half the fun. The other half of the fun (or maybe even more than half), is decorating! Open up your Photo Album in your menu and then select a photo to decorate.
You can select backgrounds from various places you have visited in Alola, plus a few bonus backgrounds like a cake. If you don’t have many backgrounds at the start, don’t fret. Backgrounds automatically are given to you as you discover more and more places in Alola. So get trekking!
You can also put a decorative frame around your picture. For example have you ever wanted to have your very own Rotom Dex frame? Well, now you can! Or how about those action lines like what you see in a comic book panel? Or maybe you can split the image in half using a super tacky comic book frame complete with bright yellow! The options are endless.
After you’ve set your photo in the most ominous looking setting ever, you are set to decorate! There’s four types of stickers you’ll see. The left category contains small-size stickers. These are your flowers, small stars, and small emoticon speech bubbles that you can use the spruce up your photo a little.
The second category contains medium stickers. These contain things like shooting stars, smaller-sized effects, and musical notes and can add a lot of flair!
The large stickers take up a lot of space on your photo and can really help change the mood. There’s explosion effects, psychic energy auras, and more! Add some intensity with a laser! The insignias of the evil teams are also here. You will unlock most of them after the Team Rainbow Rocket episode.
The last category are speech stickers. Unlike the emoticon speech bubbles that are smaller, these say larger sentences such as "Congrats on your Evolution!" or "Happy Birthday!" They can add a nice greeting-card feeling to a photo and can commemorate somebody’s special day.
Once you are done, you can either save it as a copy on your SD card, or overwrite the original photo file completely. Bear in mind that if you want to make multiple sticker schemes of the same photo you’ll want to save as a copy. Once you’ve stickered something you can never change it again.
After you’re done, you can pick your favorite photo to share via Global Link and Festival Plaza. You can also import the photos to your computer using the SD card to keep them forever!
