We need to pick pictures with well-defined subjects, such as people, pets, or objects. Make sure the subject is in focus and that the background is simple. If you’re having trouble cutting out the subject of a picture, try using a different photo or adjusting the angle of the picture. We can add multiple stickers to a single message.
