The overlay I use for crystal ponies.
Use at this opacity.
WILL NOT AND CANNOT WORK WITH MS PAINT. GET A MORE VERSATILE PROGRAM TO USE THIS. Like, Paint.net. It's free and much less shitty than paint, while not being as complicated as photoshop. I'm not trying to imply paint is a bad program or its users are bad, it's just not a very versatile program.

Would this work with a program liked Ibis Paint?

I have no idea, but I assume if it has a layer system it’ll work with this.

Funny thing is that it kinda works in MS paint if you overlap the images and then put it in transparent

I discovered that on accident :D

How do you make it transparent?

1. You Put the Image you want first (be sure to have "transparency" Selection Off)
2. You put this image but before de-selecting it put the "transparency" selection on and then this image will go transparent.

Dunno if people still use this
It should work in any program (aside from crappy programs like MS paint. Fire Alpaca is free to use and it works fine)
but to use it you have to open the file with this picture is a Layer so

"Open as Layer" is what mine says but thats how you use it

A lot of people definitely still use this... sometimes I'm pretty sure people have used it without my permission before, but since it's a soft overlay that is so easy to replicate in a different way, it's hard to tell/care since I didn't put that much energy into this.
so that's going to help Fire Alpaca people use it! I guess? I'm not sure what to say i'm a bit out of it right now
i honestly don't care anymore that people might be using it without credit cause it's not like it's some intense labor of love, it's just an overlay created by messing around with different filters and i can't honestly remember how i did it DX, it's just nice to be credited.

Well while you are still active, I dont mean to pry or bother im sure you have many other things to do. Can i ask for one thats a larger file? 
StarryOak's avatar
nope don't have one unfortunately?
And... I... completely, 100% forgot how to make this
i wish i had a more dignified way to say no but the honest to god answer is just 'i forgot how i did this and couldn't reproduce it if i tried'
