SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PicsArt, the leading image editing app and creative social network, today announced the release of community-powered stickers. Starting today, users can make their own custom stickers and discover and share stickers with friends. Stickers leverage PicsArt’s powerful editing tools including drawing, image effects and text overlays. Stickers can be created, downloaded and remixed in PicsArt and Remix Chat, and shared in iMessage and other messaging services and social networks. PicsArt now attracts more than 90 million monthly active users.
The introduction of stickers to PicsArt's platform adds another layer of fun, creative expression alongside photo editing, collage making, drawing, and social editing. PicsArt’s user-powered gallery of FTE (free-to-edit) images -- with over 6 million images and counting -- is one of the world’s largest repositories of open source images. Now, all of those images are available for use in sticker creation. In this new update, stickers shared publicly are made available for use by everyone in PicsArt's global community and creative ecosystem.
Discover trending stickers and stickers made by friends and others in the PicsArt community in the new in-app gallery where all stickers have attribution to the original creator. Download and customize stickers with doodles, artistic AI Magic effects, and more, and save favorite stickers to a private collection for easy access. Stickers can be added to other images and shared with friends via PicsArt’s in-app messaging service Remix Chat, as well as on iMessage, Instagram, Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, and other popular social services and networks.
