Instagram Stories has a trick that can resize images as if they were stickers. When taking a photo or recording a video, just move the page with your fingers to increase or decrease the image, as it works with a sticker on the platform. The background of the screen will be colored automatically, following the color palette of the captured image. It is worth noting that the resource does not work with files sent from the cell phone's own gallery.
Check out the following tutorial on how to use photos and videos as stickers in Instagram Stories. The process was done on an iPhone (iOS), but the instructions are the same for Android.
