Something that always brings a tear to my mind is uninspired Instagram stories. If you have a group of like-minded friends, you end up with like-minded stories. While it may seem difficult to stand out, stickers have been designed to be different from other users – and if you know everything there is to know about Instagram stickers, you'll become a sticker master.
Instagram has static and animated stickers available to you, and in your photo and / or video stories, you can do all kinds of things. In the following, we will highlight all the obvious, little-known and secret things that you can do with stickers in your stories. These work on both Android and iOS devices. On an iPhone. If we missed something, let us know!
Tip # 1
: Resize or Delete a Sticker
All stickers have basic behavior that you can count on. To put a sticker on a picture, tap the sticker icon in the upper right corner, and a variety of stickers will appear in front of you. Tap one to add it. You can resize it or drag it to the trash can at the bottom of the screen to delete it.
When a sticker displays "Tap for more" after adding it This means that you can tap on the sticker to see different variations. Usually it just shifts the color to white or translucent, but sometimes you get a lot of different looks.
A good example of this is the weather sticker, which turns into a number of different options that all show the weather. Another example: tapping the coffee sticker turns it into a milk carton.
A good rule of thumb is that, when you see the label "Tap for more", you go through the different sticker variations. Even if you do not see it, give it a few quick taps because you can still get a variation. In this case, the sticker is likely to be reflected horizontally when you tap it.
Tip 3: Emoji Things Up  After the normal sticker options, you'll see a lot of emoji stickers you can use. After adding one, you can resize it, delete it, and mirror it horizontally with a single tap. You can also use the text tool ("Aa") to add it to your keyboard's emoji options, but you can not flip it over with a single tap.
While on the main sticker box, wear a hat or glasses You will see if you swipe left all available hats and glasses. Like everything else, you can resize or delete it after adding it. In most cases, tapping on the hat or crown will do nothing, but some will be rotated horizontally. Tapping normal glasses will usually not do anything, but tapping on sunglasses will change the color of the lenses.
When you select the "Location" sticker, Instagram displays a list Suggestions nearby. But you do not have to stick to this list – you can "search" and add anywhere in the world without having to falsify your location.
After selecting your location, this will be displayed as your location sticker in your story. Again, you can resize and empty the trash, but when you tap it, only the text color changes and the background becomes semi-transparent.
Tip # 6: Creating a Custom Location-Based Sticker
While there's no way to enter a location that is not is included in the proposals that you give either from neighboring sites or from those you are looking for. Create your own custom location. It is not very easy though. For more information, see the full tutorial on:
Tip # 7: Mark Another User with a Sticker
If you select the "@Mention" sticker, you can tag any of your friends on Instagram. Just start typing your username and your friend should be one of the first suggestions. People who are not your friends can also appear here, even if you do not follow them. Hierarchy prioritizes people you follow and follow, people you follow then popular Instagram personalities.
If you post it to your story, you will receive notification that it has been flagged they can unravel themselves if they want. Anyone who sees your story can tap on @mentions to see links to their profiles.
Like other stickers, you can resize or delete them, and when you tap on them, only the text color changes and the background halves. transparent
Tip 8: Add some hashtag stickers
Hashtags work the same way here as in regular posts – add it Your story will increase its visibility, possibly appearing as a highlighted story on the search page of the hashtag. Once you start typing a "# hashtag" sticker, Instagram will show a number of trends as suggestions. Remember that you can only add one hashtag per sticker, so count it (or just add a stack of stickers).
Like other stickers, you can resize or delete them, and when you tap them, only the text changes color and makes the background semi-transparent. If users tap a hashtag in their history, they can choose Show Hashtag to jump directly to the hashtag page.
