iOS 17 now gives you quick access to all your stickers—including those from third-party apps — and allows you to create your own Live Stickers.
This new feature lets you add effects to the cut-out images and store the stickers in the new app drawer in Messages. Here’s how to make Live Stickers:
° Open Messages.
° Go to a text conversation and tap the plus sign (+) to the left of the text field.
° Tap Stickers.
° Choose the “New Sticker” button to make one or tap the emoji or Memoji icon to use existing stickers.
° Tap Add Sticker.
° OR you can make stickers directly in the Photos app by long pressing on a subject in an image, letting go, then tapping Add Sticker
° Either way, the Live Sticker is added to the Stickers app in Messages.
In the app, you can, if you wish, Rearrange, Add Effect or Delete your Live Sticker within the Stickers app. Apple says you can use your new Live Sticker anywhere you can access emoji.
