Tip: There are also apps, like Reddit, Twitch, 1Password, etc., that add fun stickers to your iMessage app drawer when you have the app installed on your iPhone. Sadly, you cannot install these stickers in a standalone manner.
Creating Your Own Stickers
If you're using iOS 17, you can also create your own stickers, still and animated, from the subjects in your photos and live photos to add even more fun to any conversation.
Go to an iMessage conversation and tap the '+' icon in the bottom-left corner of the screen.
Then, go to the 'Sticker' icon and tap the '+' option.
Select the photo from your gallery which you want to turn into a sticker. You can also switch to the 'Live' tab to create an animated sticker.
The sticker will be highlighted automatically. If it is a live photo, it'll automatically become an animated sticker; you can turn it off by tapping the 'Live' option in the upper-left corner of the screen. Then, tap on 'Add Sticker' in the bottom-right corner.
It will appear in your sticker drawer.
