By default, all the props in the pack are selected. Add them to your preset by tapping Choose in the upper right-hand corner.

Alternatively, you can mix and match your favorites by tapping individual props to deselect or reselect them. Any props that are highlighted with a blue border will be added to your preset once you tap Choose

We recommend limiting the number of digital props available so they don’t get to overwhelmed by all the greatness. You know, too much of a good thing and all…

You can use digital props with gifs or photos! 🍾
