It is also possible to add the emojis. It is a very simple interface and the whole process is very intuitive. It also has a button to make and another to undo changes.


Other options to create stickers

In case you don’t want to use the native option, then you can use other applications. There are several apps that allow you to make graphics in a few steps. These include Stickerly, Sticker Maker and Wemoji.

In most apps there is an automatic hack tool. In these cases, the system identifies on its own what it should remove from the photo and then the user, if he so wishes, makes manual adjustments.
