Custom stickers were introduced with the advent of One UI 5. However, the functionality was quite limited then, and you could only share the created stickers as photos. But this is further improved with the One UI 6 update in Samsung Galaxy Phones.

We’re testing the said feature in the flagship S23 series on One UI 6 with Android 14, but it can also be implemented in the midrange Galaxy A-series if it’s running the latest One UI 6, though the results may vary.

Create Custom Stickers From Photos in Samsung Galaxy Phones

1. To create custom stickers for Samsung Galaxy Phones with One UI 6, open the Gallery app and navigate to the photo you want to create a sticker from.

2. Hold on to a subject in the photo for about 5 seconds. For example, a pizza in a food snap, a friend posing for a photo, or a plant or tree. You’ll observe a ripple animation on the screen and feel a slight vibration if the phone finds a valid subject in the photo to clip.

Note: You can try to tap and hold multiple times in a photo if the phone doesn’t recognize a subject in the first go.

3. Move your finger away from the screen after the haptic feedback and you’ll see a few options. Tap on Save as a sticker to save the picked-up clip as a sticker on your phone.
