How to create stickers on WhatsApp iPhone

So let's see how to make stickers on WhatsApp for iPhone using one of the two available procedures: the official one, which consists of creating an app in which to attach your own package of personalized stickers (creating the stickers wherever you want, even on a PC), or using applications for iOS that allow you to create stickers "on the fly", from the phone and save them locally and then eventually distribute them to other iPhones with the same app installed.

Standard procedure

As I mentioned in the introduction to the guide, the standard procedure that allows create stickers on Whatsapp for iPhone, consists of creating a pack of stickers, attaching it to an application for iOS and publishing it on the App Store (on the Android side, of course, you have to do the same thing, publishing the app on the Play Store). Once the app containing the stickers has been published, any user who downloads it will be able to send the stickers contained within it via WhatsApp.

The first operation you need to do, therefore, is to prepare the images you want to turn into stickers for WhatsApp. Before explaining how to do this, know that the image to be used for this purpose must have it transparent background (so I recommend that you use a suitable format, such as PNG), must have a resolution equal to 512 512 pixels x and have one size less than 100 kB.

For practical reasons, I suggest you edit the images to be used as an adhesive by acting as a computer, perhaps using a program such as GIMP, which is free, open source, and is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Alternatively, you could also contact an online service such as, which does everything automatically and works directly from the browser. However, due to the fact that it is completely automatic, it does not offer the freedom of action that programs like GIMP offer, so my advice is to "get your hands dirty" with software of this kind or, perhaps, use the two solutions. together: to crop the source image and GIMP to resize it and fix any details.

That said, if you haven't downloaded GIMP to your computer yet, fix it right now by following the directions I gave you in my tutorial dedicated to the topic.

Once GIMP is installed and started, open the menu Fillet collocato in alto a sinistra and selects the voice New from the latter, to start creating a new image. In the window that opens, write 512 In fields Width e Height and click on the button OK.

Next, use the various tools available in GIMP to create the sticker design to add to WhatsApp and then click on the items File> Export As (top left) to save the file in PNG. More info here.

Alternatively, if you have already cropped the image with or in any case you want to create a sticker starting from an already existing image, import the latter into GIMP using the menu File> Open (top left) or by dragging it to the main program window.

Then select the item Image scale from the menu Image and, in the window that opens, write 512 in the text fields Width e Height. Once this is done, click on the button Ladder, to apply the changes. More info here.

At this point, to set the transparency of the background, click on the item Subscription, select the items Transparency> Add Alpha Layer from the menu that opens, select it freehand tool (the symbol of rope) from the toolbar located on the left and select the subject you are interested in cropping.

Then click on the rectangular marquee tool (the symbol of square) in the toolbar on the left, click on the items Selection> Invert and delete the selected portion of the image by pressing the keys simultaneously Ctrl + x (on Windows) e cmd + x (your macOS).

Finally, click on the items Select e Nothing and exports the image in the format PNG. If you want more information on how to cut an image and how to make the background of an image transparent, please consult the insights that I have linked to you.

Once you have created the stickers to add to your sticker pack, you need to create an app that respects the guidelines of the Apple App Store and publish it on the latter. To do this, you must have a Apple developer account (at a cost of $ 99 per year).

If you want more information on how to create an app and how to publish it on the App Store, please consult the insights that I have linked to you where I have provided you with general explanations on how to do this. I also invite you to read this page on the WhatsApp website, which contains other instructions that may be useful to you.

App to create stickers on WhatsApp iPhone

If you don't want to create an iOS app, you can use some app to create stickers on WhatsApp directly on iPhone, which allow you to create a pack of stickers to be installed locally and added to the famous instant messaging service. The packages are, as mentioned, saved locally, but if your friends install the same app, it is possible to transfer the package of stickers created and have them installed too (who can then use it in WhatsApp). Interesting, right?

One of the best solutions suitable for this purpose is Top Stickers Sticker Meme, which allows you to add stickers already present in the app to WhatsApp or to create customized ones.
