Imagine transforming your favourite photos into stickers that you can use to adorn your laptops, notebooks, or even your office walls. It's a delightful way to keep your cherished memories close, and share them with your friends and family. Want to learn how to print pictures into stickers? Read on for our handy guide.
Why bother turning your photos into stickers?
In today's digital age, we capture countless memories with our smartphones. From breathtaking landscapes to candid moments with loved ones, our photo libraries are filled with cherished images.
But too often, our memories remain on our phones, lost amongst the many thousands we have stored on our smartphone storage, or posted onto social media. While scrolling through these digital collections brings back fond memories, there's something special about transforming those photos into physical keepsakes.
Download your photos
To begin the sticker-making process, you'll need to download the photos you wish to upload onto your custom stickers. If you haven't already transferred your images from your phone to your computer, you can do so using a USB cable or by syncing your photos through cloud storage services. Once your photos are accessible on your computer and you have downloaded a copy of each image, you can proceed to the next step.
Choose the right format for your photos
First thing’s first: format is key. JPEGs and PNGs are the most popular choices when it comes to image formats. JPEG is preferred for its smaller file size, making it quicker to upload. PNG, on the other hand, excels in preserving image quality, especially if your photo has lots of detail or vibrant colours.
It’s important to make sure that you format your photos in the correct file size and type before making your stickers. This is because it is very difficult to alter the formatting of your photos once they have been compressed, and can result in a grainy or blurry image.
Prepare your image to sticker transformation
Before you make photos into stickers, you'll need to prepare your image. This involves choosing your favourite photo, cropping it to your liking, and possibly applying some filters or editing it to highlight its best features.
Remember, the quality of the photo you choose will directly impact how your stickers turn out. So, high-resolution images work best. After all, who would want a blurry memory?
