Step by step

See how to create stickers in the messengers that iPhone users usually use. Although the example is an animated image, the feature works normally with photos taken by users themselves. Come on?

Add sticker on WhatsApp

Step 1: Open the app Photos and select the image you want to make a sticker. Now you will squeeze and press on the object, person, animal or whatever you want the sticker to be. After a brief animation, the pressed space will “float” with the options displayed in the image. Click in "Copy";

IMPORTANT: This step is fundamental for creating stickers in any application, so always remember it!
