Just two months after launching the ability to make customer stickers, PicsArt now has one of the biggest collections of free stickers in the world. The mobile photo editing app is now home to over a million stickers tagged with the #freetoedit hashtag that means users can integrate them into their own shots.

Stickers, or small graphics that can be added to any photo, are growing in popularity with their inclusion in a number of social media platforms from Snapchat to Facebook. PicsArt’s photo editing tools makes it possible for users to create their own stickers from a photo or using drawing tools. Those custom stickers can then be exported to use within other apps, as well as sharing them within the PicsArt community.

Thanks to PicsArt’s #freetoedit tag that allows users to indicate if it is OK to re-use that artwork, the custom sticker option has now generated more than a million stickers that have the tag. The feature allows the stickers to be used inside the PicsArt platform with attribution to the sticker’s creator, which the company says helps users to grow their number of followers on the platform.

‘’Our community has shown us how important stickers are for creative expression both on and off of PicsArt,” PicsArt CEO Hovhannes Avoyan said. ‘’With over 1,000,000 stickers created in 60 days and accelerating, we’ve quickly amassed a large collection of open-source stickers that will inspire creativity and remixing from millions more on PicsArt.”

PicsArt only launched the ability to develop custom stickers at the end of March. The feature uses PicsArt’s existing tools and filters to cut an object out of a photo, adjust it and save it as a sticker than can be used with other images or exported to use on Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, Twitter, What’s App and iMessenger.

Since the launch of the feature, the app has also integrated the ability to use stickers on a live preview, before taking a picture. It has more than 400 million installs — with 90 million of them active monthly users — making it one of the leading social image editing apps.

Instagram is amazing, and many of us use it as a record of our lives — uploading the best bits of our trips, adventures, and notable moments.

The new X sign replacing the Twitter logo on the company's headquarters in San Francisco.

The social media platform formerly known as Twitter and recently rebranded as X appears to be having trouble showing images posted on the site between 2011 and 2014.

The issue came to widespread attention on Saturday when X user Tom Coates noted how the famous selfie posted by Ellen DeGeneres at the Oscars in 2014, which quickly broke the “most retweets” record, was no longer displaying. Later reports suggested the image had been restored, though, at the time of writing, we’re not seeing it.
