    To do this we are going to continue to be lazy (not measure) and place out rulers.
    Align a vertical ruler to the left side of the 1st column.
    Align a vertical ruler to the right side of the 3rd column.

    Grab two more rulers and overlay them so that they intersect the middle of the green grabber ends of the two rulers you just placed (see image)

    Right-click and Remove the two inner rulers closer to the stickers

    We are now left with a half ruler gap between the outer rulers and the sticker columns and are ready to crop our sticker sheet.
    Because the sequence does not run vertically we do not need to measure for the top and bottom of the rows, we can just eyeball some breathing space here.
    Grab the selection tool from the tool palette and make sure that your settings for it are set to rectangle.
    Line up your cursor with the inner edge of the far left ruler and drag to the inner edge of the far right ruler. Allow your selection to have a little bit of room at the top and bottom of the sticker rows. (see image)

    From the Edit menu select 'Crop to Selection'.
    In the layer palette right-click the layer with all 6 stickers and choose 'Export Layer'
    Save the file as a .png (eg. Multisponge.png)

    We are now ready to import and setup our sticker sequence in the sticker palette.
    Click open the sticker panel if you don't have it open already and hit the 'New' button.
    Under lower layer, click the open cell area under Colour (you can also click the '' in the circle next to colour), choose your Multisponge.png file
    Set the columns to 3 and the rows to 2. Notice the grid appear on the left hand image as you do this. This is why our spacing was important.
    Name the new sticker sequence at the top and click OK.

    From the file menu open a new file. You do not have to save your current canvas as we've already exported out the .png file that we needed.
    Choose the sticker spray tool.
    Open the settings panel
    Click the sheet button and set it to the Multisponge sticker sheet you just created.
    Turn Shadow off.
    Click the variations panel and from the menu choose 'Setup for object spray'
    Clear the 'Offset' value
    Set the 'Rotation' value that is there already to 100
    Set the scale value that is already there to 100
    Choose a colour from the colour palette
    Paint your canvas.

    You may also like to try it with the settings for 'Setup for Image Brush Spray'
    The Spray Variation panel is a subject for another lengthy tutorial. In the meantime you can learn more about the settings for spray variation in your AR3 Studio Pro manual.
    You can also find lots of handy spray variation information in my tutorials:-

    Good info...was wondering if anyone can help...

    Hello,
    is there a simple way to delete a sticker that has been installed in the sticker set from a photo or image I have imported as a new sticker? I can't seem to find any settings that allow this to be done.
    Thanks.
