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.

Same here, before upgrading to OneUI 6.1, I was able to manually draw around what I'd like to clip to become my sticker, but now there are no options to do so. It automatically makes a clip to the picture you've selected to be made into a sticker. There's no choice to add another area yourself.

 Even if you press next, you used to be able to add doodles, shapes and what nots to the clip we made, but now only this:

 I understand the clip might be more accurate after the OS upgrade, but being removed the option to manually fix anything AI couldn't do is sad. Please make a fix, I really liked what you've created for allowing us to simply make our own sticker and use Samsung Keyboard to send it to people.

Yeah I tried various to get it to not know what to clip a sticker of like having a few images on screen then it just say sorry can't make a sticker, that's a bad design update, I use the sticker feature immensely in group chats and now can't edit how I want to, please add back the sticker clip as a manual option

Before the one ui 6.1 update I could make custom stickers with a "lasso/snap to shape" option or manually draw a shape that I wanted to cut out of a picture. It was extremely useful and perfectly functional. Now it selects the object in the picture for me. There doesn't seem to be any option to select an object from the picture on my own, crop, or otherwise customize the sticker I want to make from the photo in any way. It just pulls an image and gives some filter options. Please, I'm begging, return this feature to it's previous, actually useful state.

@Shlick Try this:

  1. Click on a photo 
  2. Long press on the item that you want to make a sticker
  3. When the menu pops up, click the 3 dots and select edit.
  4. You will then have the ability to draw around to deselect part of the area or add to the area.

I've just noticed this as well! I used that feature a lot but now I can't select the objects I want! Why did they remove the custom shape button? Ugh

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.
