Sticker Drop is an iOS app that let’ you easily create stickers from images. The idea was created to mainly use the “Copy Subject” feature on iOS 16. This feature allows a user to copy the main subject from an image. 

The video below shows a demo of the first version of the app. It goes from doing a copy subject all the way though to using a shortcut to quickly create selfie stickers.

How it works

  1. In iOS 16 photos app, long press on a  photo.
  2. It should do a “Copy Subject”. Where the main subject in the image is highlighted and menu is shown.
  3. Tap share.
  4. Find Sticker Drop.
  5. Edit the appearance and tap Create.
  6. Now navigate to the Messages app.
  7. On the App tray scroll to find Sticker Drop, if you can’t find it, tap the 3 dots at the end of the row.
  8. Your newly created sticker will be available to use in your Messages.
  9. Tap on a sticker and drag it on to a message or just tap the sticker to send it as an image.
