Adding stickers to your Instagram stories is a great way to spice up your story and give it another dimension that naked images do not have. Those who use Snapchat know that the platform also contains stickers, and you can even pin them to your snaps. Fortunately, you can do the same with Instagram.
While both platforms use the same terms for "sticker" and "pinning," there are some differences in the way you actually complete the process. Snapchat behaves in such a way that texture and depth are important (Snap Inc. is an AR company), while Instagram does not care about it.
: Create a video
Once open Instagram, tap the camera icon in the upper left corner. To record a video, hold down the white circle in the middle. You will know that a video is being recorded because the circumference of the circle is starting to blush. Lift your finger to stop recording.
After capturing your video, swipe up from the bottom of the screen (or tap the note icon at the top right corner) to attach the stickers. You can add an emoji, GIF or things like polls. Tap one of them and it will appear superimposed on the top of your video.
Next, tap and hold on the sticker, then release. Below are two buttons: Cancel and Pinning. Below these buttons is a slider that allows you to scrub through the video. Drag the slider until your video shows the location where you want to pin your sticker – then tap "Pin" to fix it at this point.
When your video plays, the attached sticker remains attached to it Place. You can share your creation with specific people by tapping on "Send To", or you can add them to your story by tapping on "Your Story".
I personally like the way Instagram has implemented sticker pinning. It may not have the AR component that Snapchat does, but it's easier overall because you do not have to wait for the video to stick to it again.
