How to put a sticker on a video

Many people perceive visual information better than auditory one, and therefore, when editing a video, such people usually add additional visual elements, for example, video stickers.

Some of them are just funny and cute, like hearts and thought clouds, and add additional subtext to the video that the author chose not to say out loud. Other stickers, like arrows, questions, or exclamation marks, can be used as annotations that explain and help viewers better understand the video content or emphasize certain moments or parts of a video.

Now, where to put stickers so they fit the narrative? Actually, anywhere you need them. They can be very versatile: whether it's a segment of a video essay, a humorous clip, or just a story for social networks, all of them could benefit from motion stickers.
