The Special Product extension allows you to create and add stripe-type images which will be shown on top of the main product image. After installation, you will have a new attribute which is called "Special Image" and there will be two options: "deal" and "special". Each of them will add the corresponding stripe on top of the base image for the product.

Make sure that you have compilation disabled before installing extension. System > Tools > Compilation page and click on Disable button. After Installation you can enable compilation back.
