Not only this but on Android WhatsApp users can also create their own custom stickers, using their own photos.
Now convert your photos into WhatsApp Stickers
Here are the steps to follow to do the same. Before you begin with the steps, you need to follow two main steps: First one is to create an image without any background and second is to add it to WhatsApp Stickers.
- Ensure that you have WhatsApp version 2.18 or above running on your smartphone.

- Select the photo which you want to convert into Stickers
- Erase the background using the tool you downloaded from Google Play store
- Now crop the image to make it look like Stickers

- From Google Play Store download ‘Personal Stickers for WhatsApp’ app and open it
- The ‘Personal Stickers for WhatsApp’ app will automatically identify all the 'personalised stickers' that you have created
- Click on the ‘Add’ button placed beside these 'personalised stickers' option
