How to prepare an image?

No matter what your operating system is. Widows or Mac, before starting to make a telegram, you should have a picture in PNG format. Use Photoshop, GIMP, or Affinity Photo software to make a PNG photo.

Here I use Affinity Photo on Mac but you can use Photoshop on windows. The process of turning format of a photo into PNG, on all software is the same, create 512*512pixel canvas, select a portion of photo that you want to turn into a sticker, copy and paste it on canvas or transparent layer, export the result as PNG.

How to create a transparent PNG image in Photoshop?

Open your image that you wish to make a sticker out of it, preferably in 512*512 dimensions. If your image is not in 512*512 dimensions, Photoshop defines this photo as background. Double click on background image then press ok.

Create a new transparent layer, as I show you in the picture, under layer menu, click on new and then layer. Now you have a transparent layer and background layer.

Go to the background layer and select the portion of your background with selection tool (if you cannot see selection tool in the slide bar, as I show you in the picture. press CTR+F which is found a tool to discover and find every tool you need on Photoshop, type selection tool )

Affinity Photo on Mac

You can use Affinity Photo on Mac or GIMP. These tools are very powerful. I show you the process of turning a photo into stickers in a few steps.

Step one; Open your photo editing software such as Affinity Photo. The first step is to create a 512 x 512-pixel canvas. Choose to enable a transparent background.

Step two; Open the photo that you wish to make into a sticker.

Step three; use Freehand Selection tool on Affinity Photo to select a portion of the photo that you want to turn into sticker. If you want your selection edge soft, you can use the Feather tool under the Select menu. In case you use a picture like a bird, cat. You need to have a soft selection edge.   

Step four; copy selected portion and paste it on canvas.

Step five; under menu, select export to save it as a PNG file. Now you have a photo that you want to make into a sticker in PNG format.
