OTT messaging provider, Line has announced the release of a selfie photo service that converts photos into its own "messaging sticker" facility.
Line Selfie Sticker can be used to make original stickers out of self-portraits, or "selfies" in just three simple steps. First, users take a picture of their own face, and then they choose their favorite character from over 130 illustrations covering 17 exciting themes, including Line characters, astronauts, skateboarders, wedding gowns, cheerleaders, monsters, and more. After that, all users have to do is fit the illustration to the original picture and tap it when they are done. In just three taps, users have their own original stickers they can send to friends.
Users can adjust specific aspects of the stickers by changing the face size or angle, enlarging or shrinking text, or adding speech balloons with their own messages, creating unique stickers that can be used in any situation.
Stickers created within the Line Selfie Sticker app can be sent directly through chats in Line, posted to the TimeLine, or be edited further in Line camera. They can also be shared across a wide variety of social networking services besides Line, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
The first release is only available on Apple iPhone, although an Android release of Line Selfie Sticker is planned for the near future.
