How to Create Sticker from Photo on Instagram

Instagram has introduced the Cutouts feature, allowing users to craft stickers from photos directly within the app. This article will guide you through the process of creating and placing a sticker on your Instagram Story.

Firstly, ensure you've updated your Instagram app to the latest version. Android users can do this by accessing the PlayStore, searching for Instagram, and tapping on the app to update it. Similarly, iOS users can update the app via the App Store on their iPhone. Once updated, follow these steps:

  • Launch the Instagram app on your smartphone.
  • Swipe from left to right to access the camera section.
  • Tap on the gallery icon located in the lower left corner.
  • Choose the photo you wish to use as the background or apply the sticker to.
  • Look for the Cutouts option at the bottom of the screen. If not visible, tap on the sticker icon at the top to access the stickers menu.
