I'm having an issue creating stickers from the gallery.

In the past, we could long press to get a sticker selection amd then manually edit that selection.
 
Now however, the ai selection makes it's selection, and we get no option to adjust that selection at all.
(For instance, I wanted just a head selection, but instead it selected the entire object with now option to crop or adjust it.)
 
Getting some videos posted on how these new tools can be used would be SO helpful, instead of only seeing 50,000 camera shootouts.

Thank you for your effort. I had hoped this option would work, but I'm choosing the entire picture to make it a sticker. Before the update I could simply click on the picture I wanted to 'paste' the sticker on. I could select another entire picture to become the sticker and when it was added, I could re-size it without losing resolution quality. 

With your solution, there are extra steps, and when I add the sticker to a picture and resize it the quality is significantly lower. This is a work around, but unfortunately not a solution.

I'm having no fun with the new update. I live making my own photo edits. But this update has taken so much away. I use to be able to choose the whole image before, as when editing, I may need that entire picture to be added to the edit I'm creating. It no longer allows this. Instead it clips a totally irrelevant option, and it's so annoying. The old set up even before the previous update was great. As even that update had issues. I preferred the earlier gallery photo editor options.

We should be able to chose the whole picture again, also choose a better clip option. Even the four dot then lasso option isn't as good as the older versions. They gave us the freedom to make so great edits in a simple way. Now it's removed many options that made it great. It's so frustrating. 

It took me ages to find any forum mentioning this issue. So I'm glad I found this one. You hit the nail on the head sir 

I would much prefer one of the earlier versions, as I got good at editing. Now it's like huge roadblocks have been placed in our way.

I'm a 52-year-old Disabled British Army Veteran. I'm laid up 99.9% of the time. So it's been an important part of my sanity. Now it's adding to my issues, cause I can't create edits with the same freedom it use to offer.

This picture had  nothing selectable when trying to make a sticker but it could also have had only one building being automatically selectable where I wanted to make  sticker out of a different building. 

 So in Gallery I select EDIT and then the Four Circle Tool icon in the edit menu highlighted in this next Pic.

Next tap the lasso icon from the menu highlited below

Select the type of tool you want use, whether free hand or shape and highlight what you want to cut and turn into the sticker.  When you have that click on NEXT (highlighted) in the upper right of the editor to create the clip

Once you have the clip a menu pops up and you have the option to save it as a sticker.  You can also select the entire image and save that as a sticker.

To paste an full image  the easiest way I've found is to first, open the image that you want to paste in Gallery and then from the 3 dot menu select "Copy to Clipboard"

Next, open the Pic that you want to paste the "Sticker"  and "Paste" by pressing and holding or if you use a mouse like I do, right click for the menu and paste.  You can place and resize the image as you like.

Ok, that worked. Thank you. I still think it was better before. With the lasso, I used to be able to take out the picture dividing lines.
What about the sticker choice?1717442810702.jpg

Hi I have suffered the same frustration and while I found a workaround I am not happy with the changes. You can actually hit the three dots of the image you want to copy and click "copy to clipboard" and then go to another image you wish to place that image on top of and select paste from clipboard. Of course this is repetitive and requires you make the stickers yourself using a third party app which I recommend the "Background Eraser" app. You can make your custom stickers there and them paste them using the method I mentioned to avoid the stupid auto correct one that ends up erasing important features.

There must have been a update, forcing us to use their selection of ways to crop your stickers. The old way was much much better. I hope they go back to the better way. It used to be instead of going backwards. To a worse way. (#custom stickers)

when making stickers and erasing stuff from background; i noticed that with the last few updates, the tools have gotten less precise.
this makes it difficult or even impossible to get precision stickers or little things erased from photos.
please fix, thanks.
i used to use this app for editing all the time but have had to move to others apps sadly. i would like to just have one app (gallery app) to use in the future
