Telegram is a popular Cloud-based instant messaging service compatible with a wide variety of platforms, such as Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, etc. Some important differences between this service and its alternatives are: it encrypts your messages and prevents hacker attacks, lacks limits in terms of sharing media and storing chats, lets you coordinate groups of up to 10000 people, and so much more.
In a previous article, I showed you how to use Slack efficiently, another popular Cloud-based service that also includes instant messaging among other useful capabilities. Telegram has its perks too, as I mentioned in the previous paragraph. In this guide, however, I will talk only about one Telegram characteristic: the ability to create your own stickers pack. To do that, you would need to have Telegram Desktop installed on your PC. From there, it's easy-peasy.
Launch Telegram Desktop on your PC and enter your account credentials. If it's the first time you use Telegram Desktop, you can create a new personal account directly from the program's interface.
Go to your web browser, open a new page, and go to Telegram stickers bot page. Select the "Open Telegram Desktop" option. A new chat window will appear in Telegram Desktop.
Click the "/newpack" button and enter a name for your stickers pack.
Accessing Telegram's Create Pack Option
The next thing you need to do is to upload your image (sticker). Use Telegram's upload option located on the left side of the message panel.

Then, send an emoji that corresponds to the image you just shared.
Click the "/publish" option from the window. The program will give you access to a URL that takes visitors to your custom stickers pack. Share this URL with anyone you want to use your stickers while chatting in Telegram.
