Instagram Stories: How to use photos and videos as stickers

Instagram Stories has a trick that can resize images as if they were stickers. When taking a picture or recording a video, simply make the tweezer move with your fingers to increase or decrease the image, as it works with a sticker on the platform. The background of the screen will be colored automatically, following the color palette of the captured image. It is worth noting that the feature does not work with files sent from the gallery itself.

Check out the following tutorial how to use photos and videos as stickers in the Instagram Stories. The process was done on an iPhone (iOS), but the instructions are the same for Android.
