One of the daily used instant messaging apps that we all commonly use around the globe is the WhatsApp messenger. After all the success that it has posed to Facebook, they have bought it and since then, they have been putting immense efforts by adding new features to it. One of such recently added feature into WhatsApp is the WhatsApp Stickers.
This newly added Stickers feature has a lot to offer for both the Android and iOS users. It allows the users to send stickers other than the stock GIFs and emojis. Although this feature is available for both the Android and iOS users, Android users have more perks than the iOS users. For example, Android users can download third-party stickers from the Play Store. Apart from that, they can also create their own custom stickers which can have their own faces for more fun.
Here, we are going to guide you through the process of creating your own custom stickers in your Android device.
How To Turn Your Photos into WhatsApp Stickers
STEP 1: First things first, make sure that you have latest WhatsApp on your device. That is version 2.18 or above running on your smartphone.
STEP 2: Next up, take a picture of yourself with a clear background as it will be easier to follow the upcoming steps.
STEP 3: Now, you will have to convert this image into .png format without any format. For this, head over to the Play Store and install any background eraser app. Here, we have used the Background Eraser app.
STEP 4: Open the app and select the photo you want to convert into a sticker. Now, erase the background of that photo using the Auto, Magic or manual method.
STEP 5: Now, crop the image exactly for it to look like a sticker.
STEP 6: After cropping successfully, while saving, save the image format as .png
STEP 7: You will have to create a minimum of three images as such to use them in WhatsApp because it won’t allow adding sticker packs with less than three images in it.
STEP 8: After you have created enough stickers, head over to the Google Play Store and download the app called as Personal Stickers for WhatsApp which is not owned by WhatsApp. Yet, it proves to be helpful.
STEP 9: Now, open WhatsApp and the app that you have installed in the previous step will help you detect all the Personal stickers that are in your device. Click on the Add button shown beside the stickers that you have created.
STEP 10: Again, click on the Add option when prompted.
Step 11: Now, open any WhatsApp contact’s chat and click on the Smiley icon that is shown there. In there, click on the Stickers icon which is placed next to the GIF icon.
STEP 12: After the set of stickers that you have created shows up, just tap on the sticker that you want to send to the recipient and click on send.
STEP 13: Now, as these stickers will be saved in your recent stickers section, you won’t have to repeat the above process over and over again.
This is how all the Android WhatsApp messenger users can create their own custom WhatsApp Stickers and send them to your friends and have fun all together with them.
