How to Send My Photo as WhatsApp Sticker:
Sadly Whatsapp has not introduced any addon or option to use your photo as Whatsap Sticker. But, you need to use some third party app in order to add this feature to Whatsapp. Using these app you will be able to use almost any photo as Whatsapp Sticker.
For this you gotta need some short of app. There are two step to be followed before you add the images to Whatsapp stickers.
Send Your Photo as Whatsapp sticker: Select the desired Image and removing the background
You may have noticed that all the stickers you use in Whatsapp, are without any background ie. Transparent. In order to remove the background and make image to use as a sticker you need to save your image as .png file(as only .png files have transparent background and WhatsApp Supports only .png files)
There are several tools available for Android, Windows and Mac but here we will discuss about the Android version. Among several application on Playstore, I personally recommend Background Eraser. You can simply download by clicking here
After you have successfully installed the Background Eraser. Click a photo or open an existing image by browsing the gallery. Erase the Background of the selected image and save it as .png (As Whatsapp Sticker supports on .png files). You are required at least three images to save as .png because Whatsapp sticker maker required at least three Image to be compiled.
Converting .png file to Whatsapp Sticker
Once you have successfully saved three or more .png files without background, it’s time to convert them as Whatsapp sticker. The images, however are converted as .png but wont reflect in Whatsapp sticker bar. In order to add your photos to Whatsapp sticker list you need to convert them as Whatsapp Sticker. Follow the steps below to convert all .png file as Whatsapp sticker.
Now browser the gallery and open the .png file you have just created using Background eraser
The application will auto detect all the .png file and display the list of all available images
Step 4. Once you See al your Images here , Simply click on “add” Button. Now all your images will be added to Whatsapp Sticker section and are ready to use.
You can use your personal sticker as the default sticker and use them as per your requirements.
