Beautiful! Although photos that sparkle aren't for everybody so we do offer a second option. You can upload a separate layer behind your digital art that indicates in solid black where you don't want glitter to appear (in this instance, the area where your photo will be) and we will run a hit of white in that specific area to knock out the glitter effect.
