When it comes to creating stickers, Telegram is one step ahead of all instant messengers. Not only can you create your own stickers on Telegram, but you can also carry out the entire process on the app itself, in just a few simple steps. All you need to know is how to remove the background from an image. In this article, we show you how to create your Telegram stickers in just a few simple steps.
Here’s how you can create your own Telegram stickers
Step 1: Choose an image for the sticker. You can download an image from the Internet, take a screenshot from a video, or even pick one from your phone’s gallery.
Step 2: Remove the background from the image and create a PNG file. You can do this using any basic editing software or web tools like Adobe Photoshop or PhotoRoom.

If the image is copyrighted, it may be taken down later on. However, if you intend to use it among friends, the chances of the sticker receiving a copy strike are marginal.
Step 3: Launch the Telegram app on your smartphone.
Step 4: Search for ‘Sticker’ in the search bar and select the official Stickers bot. It should have the blue tick next to it.
Step 5: Type ‘/newpack’ and hit send.
Step 6: Enter a name for your sticker pack and hit send.
Step 7: Tap the attachment icon and upload the image you just edited as a file.
Step 8: Assign an emoji to the sticker. You will be able to send this sticker to your friends on Telegram using this emoji.
Step 9: Upload more images if you want to create more stickers. Assign different emojis to all of them.
Step 10: Enter ‘/publish’ and hit send to publish your sticker pack.
Step 11: Telegram gives you the option to upload a 100 x 100-pixel icon for your sticker pack. You can also choose to skip this step by entering ‘/skip’.
Step 12: Type a short name for your sticker pack. This will be a part of the URL identifier.
Step 13: The Stickers bot will create your sticker pack and send you a link. Click on the link and tap on ‘Add stickers’ to download the sticker pack on your device. You can also share this link with your Telegram contacts and groups if you want them to use the stickers you created.
Step 14: Once you’ve downloaded your sticker pack, you can access them from the sticker section in the emoji tab.
This is how you can create your own Telegram stickers. If you don’t want to edit images on your smartphone, you can use Pixlr or Adobe Photoshop on your desktop and upload them to Telegram using its web portal. Got a sticker pack of your own? Share it in the comments!
