Have you ever wished that your stickers could say more? Finished an edit you loved by wished it had just a little something extra? You’re not alone. Social media is constantly evolving to create new and innovative ways for people to tell their stories. Here at PicsArt, we believe that story should be as dynamic as our creative community behind them. That’s why we are so excited to introduce Live Stickers, released last month at KCON USA LA.
Get ready to go beyond the world of static stickers. Our Beta Live Stickers are here, and will completely change the way you tell your story.
What Are Live Stickers?
Live Stickers let you capture any moment and turn it into a dynamic sticker for you to edit, save and share. Simply use your camera to capture everything from a funny moment with your friends, or a crazy street performance on your walk to work, and use the live-action clip just as you would any other sticker.
Think of Live Stickers as a mashup of PicsArt’s AI (Artificial Intelligence) and Apple’s AR (Augmented Reality) Camera technology, come together with PicsArt’s popular Cutout tool to create a dynamic and fun way for you to spice up your image edits.
We Put Them To The Test.
Our global PicsArt community has always loved the colorful world of Kpop. When we first released Live Stickers, we decided to test them out live at KCON USA LA, the largest convention dedicated to Hallyu art and culture. We couldn’t think of a better way to pay tribute to an art form that has played such a big role in fueling our creative community. The results? Ridiculously cool.
Here’s What You Need To Know.
The Beta version of our Live Stickers are ready for our iOS users to use today! Make sure you have PicsArt version 10.2 or higher, iOS version 11.0 or higher, and an iPhone 6s, iPad 2017 or and iPad Pro (Pro tip: they work best on newer iOS devices!).
