How to create a WhatsApp sticker from your own photo?
As you may have noticed, with the application Personal Stickers for Whatsapp you can add all the stickers you want in the fastest way possible. But this is not the only one that exists. If you want to create your own stickers, we are going to teach you how to do it in two very simple ways.
Adobe PS is one of your best allies if you want to create a professional level image for your stickers. What you have to do is take the photo or drawing that you want to turn into a sticker and open it in the software. Now you will have to create a new image by clicking on “File”> “New” and establish dimensions of approximately 300×300 pixels.
Once this is done, you simply have to cut the section of the original image that you want to turn into a sticker, and paste it on the new canvas that you just created. You adjust the size so that it fits perfectly and then you cut the background to get a transparent image. To do the latter you simply have to position yourself on layer 0 that corresponds to the background, use the tool “Magic wand” to select it, and run the command “Ctrl + x”.
Finally, what you have to do is simply save the image in .webp format so that it can be read by the application. Further, to create a pack you will have to make a minimum of 3 images, so you have to repeat this process at least a couple more times.
Then you know what to do. Simply put them in a folder and save this in the internal storage of your mobile to add them to the “Wasap” using the app Personal Stickers for Whatsapp. Easy as breathing and fast as losing money in a casino.
Using a mobile application
If you find that using Photoshop is a very cumbersome process, you have the option of using a mobile application to do this work in a simpler way. In Apple Store and Google Play Store there are many, but we will teach you how to do it using the app Sticker Studio. This has a very simple operation.
What you should do once you have it downloaded and installed is open it. From it you will be able to see all the images that are in your gallery, and you simply have to select the one you want to turn into a sticker.
Then you will have to outline the section of the image you want to use and you can add text and other elements to make it more original.
Once the creation is finished, you just have to click on the symbol of the “green tick” at the bottom of the screen and voila. Before you can add everything to WhatsApp, you will have to have at least 3 images, so again you will have to repeat this process in at least two more photos.
This app has the advantage that it allows you to add the stickers directly from it without having to use another tool to do so. So that once you have the finished folder you just have to enter it from Sticker Studio and touch the WhatsApp logo to be added to this.
