Method 1: How to Insert PNG images in goodNotes

You can use the ‘image’ tool to add an image ( which is basically what your Digital Sticker is ) to your planner. However, this can take a long time if you have multiple images that you want to add.

Here is the step-by-step tutorial on how to add stickers to GoodNotes in case you want to import several PNG (or JPEG) files at once:

  • Create a ‘new document’ to collect all of your stickers in one place or open your Digital Planner’s sticker tab if it has one.
  • Now start split view on your iPad screen to be able to see your photo folder and planner side by side. To split the iPad screen you need to gently swipe up from the bottom of your screen until you see the dock. The ‘iPad Dock’ shows your favorite apps or those you that you have opened recently.
  • Tap and hold the app where your stickers are located, then drag it to either side of the screen to start split view.
