Guys guys guys! Have you know that Whatsapp mobile app has launched their sticker feature? To use this feature, just click the emoticon symbol in the left side of typing box. Then choose the third button like in the picture below:

You can use all the stickers provided by Whatsapp like what you always do in Line Chat app. But there is something exciting in Whatsapp Sticker feature. We can make ourselves stickers. Actually I do not know whether it is legal or not. Haha. Because we have to download the third party app, Sticker Maker. And I also still do not know whether we can make the sticker in Whatsapp iPhone or not. Some of my friends said that the third party app is not available in App Store.

So if you an iPhone user and you wanna have your own stickers, you can ask your friends that using Android, then send the stickers to you, you save them, and you can use the stickers. 

Okay, without further ado, I would like to share the information about how to make your own stickers. Come on check it out!

1. Prepare photos or pictures that you want to be created as Whatsapp Stickers. 

I recommend you the picture is already in PNG format with transparent background. It will easier for you when editing and exporting to be a sticker. No cutting needed.

2. Download Sticker Maker app in Google Play Store

Naa! This is the most important, you have to download Sticker Maker app in Google Play Store by Viko & Co. developer.

3. Create a New Stickerpack

The basic step is creating a new stickerpack. It will give the information of your sticker name and sticker author. That's why you should fill the blank column of Stickerpack Name and Stickerpack Author. I give you the sample in the Photo 03. Then click Create.

4. Choose The Pictures

From the last picture in Photo 03, you click the Stickername you just made it. Now it's time for you to create your own stickers.

Like Whatsapp that have Profile Picture, this feature asks you too to choose the Tray Icon. The process will be same like the process of choosing the picture for stickers. You can pick the image from Take Photo by your camera or Select File which means you take the image from your gallery.

I have made my stickers with bubble words in Photoshop, so I just need to import the file one by one. For the information, you have at least import 3 pictures (exclude Tray Icon).

 5. Editing Your Stickers

As I said to you before, I recommend to use sticker with transparent background because it will be easier. No edit needed. You can see in Photo 05, after you import the image. You only need:
  • click the button in right above
  • click Use Without Cutting

Voila! It's done! You can repeat this step for another images ya. Remember, at least 3 stickers to continue for publishing the sticker pack.

Naaa, if your image doesn't have transparent background, you need to cut the sticker. Draw an outline with your finger or stylus pen to select sticker area. You can use pinch-to-zoom to draw in better detail. But you cannot do zoom-in-zoom-out while drawing the outline.

7. Add Stickers to Whatsapp app

The last step is uploading your sticker pack to Whatsapp. There will be an advertisement but just close it, and click ADD to upload the stickers to Whatsapp app.

IT'S A WRAP! Now you open again your Whatsapp and check the stickers. You already have your own stickers!

But, something bad is I still don't know how to remove the stickers that already added to Whatsapp. Hahaha. So until now, please be wise what stickers that you want to upload. Don't make your whatsapp are full of waste stickers. Wkwkwk.

I will info you again if I already know how to remove it, or maybe you've already know? Please share to me in the comment box! Haha.

Thank you guys! Enjoy your Whatsapp stickers!
