6 SpongeBob Movie Photo Effects for Under-the-Sea Adventures

Mar 10, 2021 · 5 minutes read

SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, and Squidward Tentacles have graced our screen for decades and the beloved Bikini Bottom residents are now embarking on their latest quest to rescue Gary the Snail in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run.

Exclusive SpongeBob animated stickers, Instagram story templates, photo frames, and collages, click here to try them out in YouCam Pefect :)

And you can now celebrate these fun under-the-sea characters — including our favorite yellow sea sponge — with custom animated photo filters, courtesy of YouCam Perfect. While the movie has made its debut on premium video on demand and the new Paramount+ streaming service, you can join in on the fun with creative stickers, animations, backgrounds, and more.

Ready to add some SpongeBob fun to your photos? Download YouCam Perfect and get started animating your photos or live selfies. Here are our favorite — and most creative — ways to enhance your photos with new effects from SpongeBob Squarepants and his crew. 

1. Travel to Bikini Bottom using custom SpongeBob backgrounds

Visit the famed homes on Conch Street and the underwater universe with these new SpongeBob wallpapers and backgrounds. Add in your photo, and you can soon be nestled right next to the always-recognizable pineapple house. 

2. Join the SpongeBob friendship challenge

Who’s your BFF? Who’s the smartest, best cook, or most artistic? Use these custom SpongeBob friendship challenge layouts to tag your friends, share on social, and see the fun begin. These designed templates let you show your friends some love with superlatives like “happiest,” “kindest,” or “most supportive.”

Have fun with the challenge, tag your besties, and watch them take on the challenge themselves. Share on your favorite social media, and don’t forget to tag SpongeBob and YouCam Apps. 

3. Play with SpongeBob and Patrick animation stickers

The fun doesn’t stop there! Grab your favorite selfie, add it to YouCam Perfect, and drop in any of the latest SpongeBob and friends-inspired animation stickers. Add a leaping SpongeBob, and pinching Mr. Krabs, and an animated Sandy Cheeks. Bring a fun movement element to your images with these favorite Nickelodeon characters, right on your photos.

4. Add under-the-sea animation effects

Of course, you can’t travel to the SpongeBob universe without air bubbles. Just like we’ve seen in the show’s intro and throughout each episode, you’ll be able to animate your own air bubbles.

Add these into a selfie, a group photo, or any other snapshot, and quickly create a gif or short video clip to share on social media. Animation effects can easily take your photos to the next level and help you stand out from all of the other posts on a feed. Don’t be afraid to experiment with these and to turn your photos into works of art.

5. Get in on the fun with SpongeBob photo frames

Put yourself square into the SquarePants world with these custom fun photo frames. You’ll be surrounded by the adventurous duo of SpongeBob and Patrick, or have the entire movie’s crew on your photo’s frame. 

And while you’re at it, try to meet the photo’s theme. Go with a beachy location or an underwater selfie (just make sure you take it with a waterproof camera!) and get the exact shot you want. You’ll be placed directly into the fun and hilarious world of these characters.

6. Use the SpongeBob stickers pack for more nautical nonsense

Ready to “drop on the deck and flop like a fish”? You will be with these fun-ready stickers in YouCam Perfect. The entire cast of loveable characters has been included — even Plankton — and are ready to be added to your snapshots. Choose your favorite animated friend (or two) and get ready to #SaveGary and join the new adventure.
