creating animated emoticons

How do I...?

creating animated emoticons

Postby Samfan » Fri Feb 01, 2013 6:32 pm

Hello. I didn't know whether to put this here, but since I'll probably use them on this forum, I thought I would....

Anyone make their own animated emoticons? What do you use? Photoshop? Are there "emoticon generators" that you can recommend?

And when I've created them, I assume I have to load them on something like photobucket, and then add them to my messages?

Thanks!

Haven't made any for a few years, but there was a little free-ware programme I used to "animate" once I had made each layer in photoshop. You might be able to do the whole thing in photoshop nowadays or some other programme, but google should find you something. I don't have the programme on this computer though it may still be on my old laptop.
