How to make stickers for Telegram?
We recommend using Telegram for Web/Desktop when uploading stickers as it makes the whole exercise a lot easier.

Make sure, the image is in PNG or WEBP format with a transparent layer. Also, it must fit into a 512x512 square (one of the sides must be 512px and the other 512px or less). You can easily create such a file using a Free hand selection tool of an image editing software like Microsoft Paint.
Now, add a caption for the image file.
Choose an emoji that should correspond to your first sticker. Although, the Telegram app enables you to list several emojis in one message, we would recommended you not to use more than 2 per sticker.
Once done, click the emoji icon inside the text field and choose an emoji/s.
In a similar way, you can add more stickers. When you’re done, hit the Publish command as shown in the image above.
Now, simply provide a short name for your sticker pack. The Telegram app will use it to create a link that you can share with friends and followers.
Now, while chatting with your friend/s if you would like to send your image as a sticker, simply tap the sticker icon and choose your sticker.
