How to create an emoticon

21 posts in this topic

I want to create an emoticon of my avatar (e.g. :sandra:), but don't know how to do it. What should I do? Can anyone please tell me all the instructions? I would be very appreciative :)

I use photoshop. Just eliminate the background, resize it and blur the edges.

Which size do you recommend? And how do I blur the edges? I haven't used photoshop before and I'm completely new to these things.

Everyone will be different, but I usually go from 100 x 100 to 120 x 120. It's a blur tool in Photoshop, but I'm assuming since you haven't used PS you don't have it.
If you're into torrenting things look for a Photoshop torrent, if not look up "Photoshop alternative" and go from there.

What should I type in search? Also, can you recommend any specific video?

me skipping straight to torrenting or finding a free alternative instead of telling you to buy it. :rot:

@Jacqulee also remember to save your emoticon as a png-24. If you save it as a jpeg your no background becomes white when saved.

I think you need to donate to get your emoticon on the HB site, sis. :travis:

You have to donate to receive an official emoji, but I use the quick selection tool in photoshop. :dante:

I believe any amount is fine at the moment, but you can check here for more details regarding the donation process.

But now that I think about it, I'm wondering if you even have to donate to receive a smiley anymore. :skull: @Mariah. ?

I'm currently using pixlr.com/editor (which was recommended to me by Travis) for creating my avatars. Can you remove image backgrounds using that software? If so, what are the instructions? Can anyone help?

this member is asking for a help to create a emoticon meme, and y'all already asking him to donate money as if he asked for a emoji he has yet to create to be added into emoji section. A mess, a kii, a cackle

I'm pretty sure donations are closed right now so it wouldn't even be added. I was just giving sis a heads up, so she wouldn't go ask and embarrass herself. But since you have so much to say, help her make the emoticon.

She'd need to donate me first if she wants any instructions.

      How do I mention a user?
    • Two questions
      By Jacqulee
      Two questions:
      1 - I'm unable to use (or paste) gifs for the past few days. I get the message "You are only allowed to upload 419.84kb" while trying to load a gif. Why is that happening to me recently? Am I being punished? If so, then why?
      2 - Occasionally, I get the message "You are not allowed to give reputation to this user" while giving likes to posts. Why is there a like option if I'm not allowed to give likes?
