To create stickers with your photos on WhatsApp, you must follow a series of recommendations that are clearly communicated by the app developers themselves, already on the official website:
- Each sticker is an image with a transparent background.
- Stickers must be exactly 512 x 512 pixels.
- Each sticker must be under 100 KB in size.
To meet all of these requirements, we will one App to usedie help us is going to automate most of the process, and it’s called Sticker.ly.
When you open it, this is the first thing you see:
In this case, we’re not interested in using any of the galleries we created earlier, so we’ll click the cross button at the bottom of the screen:
Button to create a sticker
The gallery will open, from where we must select the album from which we will choose the photos to create the stickers:
Choosing the album and photos that we will use
Then we look for the desired photo and click on it. The next step is to cut out the background to create the sticker itself, something Sticker.ly does for us when we click Autoclick:
The snippet will look like this:
Automatically cut background
With the controls at the bottom of the screen we can fine-tune the cropping or add text to the sticker if we think it’s necessary. Once we’re done editing, we’ll click Next, to go to the next phase.
Next we stick the labels that we deem necessary on our sticker and click Save:
Now we need to add our sticker to a pack. Click on New pack, to create a new one:
Creation of a new pack
Then we give our pack a name and insert the name of the author. When we’re done, click Create:
Features of the new pack
And with that we’re done, our sticker pack is already created. We take this opportunity to remind you that Sticker.ly requires packs to contain at least three stickers in order to add them to WhatsApp. When we have the minimum required, just click Add to WhatsApp:
As you can see, creating your own stickers with photos from your gallery costs nothing and takes seconds with the right application.
