Create Personalized Stickers for a Fun Telegram Experience
Telegram is known for its privacy features, user-friendly interface, and, of course, the vast array of sticker packs available to make chatting even more enjoyable.
Apart from the countless sticker packs that you can find in the app, you can also create your own custom stickers in Telegram to add a personal touch to your conversations. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of creating your very own personalized stickers in Telegram, step-by-step.
1. Prepare Your Sticker Images
Before you start creating your stickers in Telegram, you need to have the images you want to use ready. You can either create your own images or find some online that you have the rights to use. To ensure your stickers look great, follow these guidelines when preparing your images:
- Format: Save your images in PNG format with a transparent background. This will make sure that your stickers blend seamlessly into any conversation.
- Dimensions: Resize your images to a maximum dimension of 512x512 pixels. Telegram requires stickers to be square-shaped and not larger than 512 pixels on each side.
- File size: Keep the file size of your images below 350 KB. Telegram has a file size limit for stickers, so compress your images if needed to ensure they are within the allowed limit.
Once you have prepared your sticker images, transfer them to the device you will be using to create your stickers in Telegram.
2. Set Up a Telegram Sticker Bot
Telegram uses bots to help users create their custom sticker packs. To begin creating your sticker pack, you will need to set up a chat with the Telegram Sticker Bot. Follow these steps to set up the bot:
- Open the Telegram app on your device.
- Tap the magnifying glass icon in the top-right corner to open the search bar.
- Type "Stickers" in the search bar and select the official @Stickers bot from the search results.
- Start a chat with the bot by tapping the "Start" button at the bottom of the screen.
Now that you have set up a chat with the Telegram Sticker Bot, you're ready to start creating your custom sticker pack.
3. Create Your Custom Sticker Pack
With the Sticker Bot ready, follow these steps to create your custom sticker pack in Telegram:
- In the chat with the Sticker Bot, type "/newpack" and send the message. The bot will ask you to provide a name for your new sticker pack.
- Enter a unique name for your sticker pack and send it as a message. The Sticker Bot will then ask you to send the first sticker image.
- Select the paperclip icon in the bottom-right corner of the chat and choose "File" from the attachment menu. Browse your device's files and select the first sticker image you prepared earlier. Send the image to the Sticker Bot.
- After sending the image, the Sticker Bot will ask you to provide an emoji that corresponds to the sticker. Choose an emoji that best represents the sticker and send it as a message. The Sticker Bot will confirm that the sticker has been added to your pack.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each sticker you want to add to your pack. You can add up to 120 stickers in a single pack.
- Once you have added all your stickers, type "/publish" and send the message. The Sticker Bot will ask you to provide a short name for your sticker pack. This short name will be used in the pack's URL and must be unique. Enter a short name and send it as a message.
After completing these steps, the Sticker Bot will generate a link to your custom sticker pack. Share this link with your friends and family to let them enjoy your personalized stickers as well!
4. Edit or Delete Your Custom Sticker Pack
If you want to make changes to your custom sticker pack, the Telegram Sticker Bot makes it easy to edit or delete your stickers. To edit your pack, type "/editsticker" in the chat with the Sticker Bot and follow the instructions provided. To delete a sticker pack, type "/delpack" and send the message, then follow the bot's instructions.
Remember that editing or deleting a sticker pack will affect all users who have added the pack to their Telegram app. So, make sure to inform your friends and family if you plan to make any changes to your shared sticker packs.
