How to Delete Sticker Images From Photos and Snaps in the Snapchat App

Key Takeaways

  • Snapchat allows you to easily remove stickers from photos and snaps before sending or posting them
  • To delete a sticker, tap and hold on it, then drag it to the trash can icon that appears
  • You can permanently delete custom stickers you’ve created by tapping and holding, then selecting “Delete”

Snapchat’s fun stickers are a great way to personalize your photos and snaps, but sometimes you may want to remove them before sharing. Whether you accidentally added the wrong sticker or just changed your mind, Snapchat makes it easy to delete stickers from your creations.

This guide will walk you through the simple process of removing stickers from photos and snaps in the Snapchat app on both iOS and Android devices.

Deleting Stickers from a Snap

To remove a sticker from a snap you’re currently editing, follow these steps:

  1. Tap and hold on the sticker you want to delete.
  2. Without lifting your finger, drag the sticker around the screen. The editing options around the sticker will disappear.
  3. A trash can icon will appear, usually on the right side or bottom of the screen.
  4. Drag the sticker to the trash can icon and release your finger to delete it.

That’s it! The sticker will be removed from your snap. If you had multiple stickers, you can repeat these steps to delete each one individually.

It’s important to note that this process only removes the sticker from the current snap you’re editing. If you created a custom sticker, it will still be saved in your sticker collection for future use.

Permanently Deleting Custom Stickers

If you’ve created your own custom stickers using the Scissors tool in Snapchat and want to permanently delete them, the process is slightly different:

  1. Open Snapchat and take a snap or open the camera view.
  2. Tap the Sticker icon on the right side of the screen.
  3. Select the Scissors icon to view your custom sticker collection.
  4. Tap and hold on the custom sticker you want to delete.
  5. A pop-up message will appear at the bottom of the screen. Select “Delete” to permanently remove the sticker from your collection.

Once you delete a custom sticker, it cannot be recovered, so be sure you really want to remove it before confirming. If you accidentally delete a sticker you still wanted, you’ll need to recreate it using the Scissors tool.

Deleting Bitmoji Stickers

Snapchat’s Bitmoji integration allows you to send personalized Bitmoji stickers in your snaps and chats. If you want to remove all Bitmoji stickers from your Snapchat account, you’ll need to unlink your Bitmoji account:

  1. Tap on your Bitmoji profile picture in the top-left corner of Snapchat.
  2. Open the Settings menu by tapping the gear icon.
  3. Scroll down and select “Bitmoji”.
  4. Tap “Unlink My Bitmoji” to disconnect your account.

This will remove all Bitmoji stickers from your Snapchat app. However, it’s an all-or-nothing approach – you cannot selectively delete individual Bitmoji stickers.

Unable to Delete Built-In Stickers

While you can remove stickers you’ve added or created yourself, Snapchat doesn’t allow you to delete the built-in sticker packs that come pre-installed with the app.

These stickers are regularly updated and cycled out by Snapchat, so if there are some you don’t like, you’ll likely only have to put up with them temporarily until new sticker packs are released.

Tips for Using Snapchat Stickers

Here are some additional tips for using stickers effectively in Snapchat:

  • Pinch to resize stickers and make them larger or smaller on your snap.
  • Rotate stickers by using two fingers to twist them.
  • Layer multiple stickers on top of each other for creative effects.
  • Use the Scissors tool to create custom stickers from any image.
  • Check for new sticker packs regularly, as Snapchat frequently adds fresh designs.

With the ability to easily add and remove stickers, Snapchat gives you full creative control over personalizing your photos and snaps before sharing them with friends.

So have fun experimenting with different sticker combinations, and don’t be afraid to delete ones you’re not feeling – that’s all part of the creative process!
