Create WhatsApp Stickers on Android in Under 5 Minutes – WhatsApp Messenger is a popular cross-platform chatting owned by Facebook. It allows you to send texts, voice calls, documents, contacts, and video calls as well.
While you text someone, you use emoji to represent what you feel, alright? And there are dozens of emoji variations. But, you can’t customize your own emoji on WhatsApp.
What you can do is creating your own WhatsApp Stickers on your Android phone. Now you have a chance to go crazy and explore your creativity by creating your own WhatsApp stickers.
Here are the simple steps to create WhatsApp stickers on Android:
Step 1: Download “StickerMaker” on Play Store
There are some apps to create WhatsApp stickers on Android. But in this tutorial, I’m using StickerMaker, cause it’s already downloaded by 5 million users. Hmm.. trustable!
- Go to Play Store
- Type “StickerMaker” in the search bar
- Download it
Step 2: Create a New Stickerpack
Open your StickerMaker app and tap Create a new stickerpack
Insert your Stickerpack name and Stickerpack author. For example, see this image below:
Step 3: Choose Images for Custom Stickers
After creating a
I’m using cartoon images from my gallery.
Step 4: Edit Images
To be able to create epic stickers, you must use .png images which have a transparent background. There are 3 ways to erase images background and make it transparent:
- Using another Android app: Background Eraser (10M+ downloads)
- Using a PC’s app: Adobe Photoshop
- Using a built-in feature of StickerMaker
There are some features to edit your images on StickerMaker, such as Rotate, Select All, Freehand, Cut Square, and Cut Circle.
Use Freehand to cut your images
But as you can see, it’s not quite easy to cut perfectly using this feature, so I recommend you to do it on another app I have told you before.
To be able to save them into your stickerpack, choose & edit at least 1 image as a tray icon and 3 images as stickers. After that, hit Add Changes to WhatsApp
Step 5: Try to Use Your WhatsApp Stickers
Hit a smiley face in the Type a message column. There will be 3 icons at the bottom: Emoji, GIF, and Sticker.
Tap the sticker icon and choose your stickerpack.
Choose the sticker you want and send it!
That’s it! Now you know how to create your own WhatsApp stickers on Android phone. Next time you found funny memes or silly images, turn them into stickers and share them with your friends!
