Telegram users can create their Stickers on Telegram using chatbots. The chatbot will make sticker packs easier, as long as you have the right image.
1. How to prepare a sticker image on Telegram

First, open the image you want to turn into a sticker in the editing service. You can use Adobe Photoshop to edit it.
Remove the image background, leaving the main image you want to appear on the sticker on top of the transparent background.
If you want to add a little touch to the sticker, you can add a border around the image.
Before exporting an image, make sure to convert it to an appropriate size. For example, telegram stickers are generally 512 x 512 pixels in size. After that, export the image as a PNG or WEBP file.
If you don’t use Photoshop, other free alternatives are Gimp and Pixlr.
2. How to make your own sticker pack on Telegram
Open the Telegram app and start a conversation with Sticker. You can find Sticker accounts using the search box.
Then send a message /start to start making sticker packs. The Sticker Bot will reply with a simple list of commands to create and manage sticker packs. Send a message to /new collection to get started.
Create a unique name for your sticker pack. Next, upload the created PNG or WEBP sticker image, then select the attachment icon in the lower-left corner of Telegram > select the File option.
Once the image is uploaded, you will be asked to send a message containing the emoji you want to associate with the Sticker. You can use more than one, but Telegram recommends no more than two emojis per Sticker.
Send a /publish message once the user is satisfied with adding emojis to complete the process or upload another file to continue adding stickers to the pack.
After submitting /publish, the user will be asked to create a sticker pack icon. This icon must be a 100 x 100 PNG file. The sticker pack icon is optional, and you can send a message / skip to continue without the icon.
You will be asked to provide a short name for the sticker pack used for the package URL.
After creating a short name, Telegram will give you a link to the sticker, which you can use to share the pack with friends or other contacts. Then, your custom sticker is ready to use.
The hardest part of the whole process is preparing the drawings. But once you get the hang of it, adding images to create a sticker pack is pretty easy because the Telegram Sticker bot guides you through the whole process is simple and easy-to-understand language.
