    Default Emojis for My iPhone

    I didn't like the default emojis that came with my iPhone 7, so I got the idea to make my own. They are nearly exact copies of Windows icons I found somewhere, but since they're only for my personal use I don't think it's a problem.

    Anyway, it's another fun use for Xara 15. Oh! And as per usual, I used 'named colors' so that I can alter as required. (My youngest granddaughter loves purple, so I gave her her own in purple instead of yellow.)

    They work well on my iPhone 7 as I resized them because the Windows emojis were too large for messaging.

    Better than the ones on my iPhone. Plus, I have to put on my glasses to see them.

    Great fun Ron but tell me if you use these Emojis and send a message does the recipient receive the same or the default emojiName:  puzzled.jpg

    That's great Ron, I've always wanted to make my own emojis.

    OK, so here's what I did.

    Created a rectangle 192.9px X 140.4px (I don't think it has to be exact, it's just what I ended up with after shrinking down the MS emoji)

    The rectangle I used as a background to the emoji itself, to center the emoji on the background.

    Create your emoji to fit within the parameters of the rectangle.

    (When creating the emoji AND the background, I used 'Named Colors' because you never know when you might want to adjust colors or shading)

    Once you satisfied with your emoji and it is centered on the rectangle, make sure they're grouped...

    Finally, export them each as a jpeg file to a "Folder" you've created for this purpose so you can find them later. Export jpeg as True Color, 50 dpi, Maintain Screen Anti-aliasing and 100 percent jpeg quality.

    That's it!



    Now I haven't uploaded any of my emojis for Android messaging, but for iPhone messaging you can do the following in order to use them on your Apple Messenger:

    Go on the internet and log in to your iCloud account: https://www.icloud.com/#

    Next: Double click on the "Photos" icon.

    Under "Albums" create a new folder called Emojis or whatever you want to call it.

    Open your new Album and then click on the icon (looks something like this ) in the upper left part of the screen.

    Go to the folder on your computer where you exported your emoji jpeg files and select as many as you want to upload, (I uploaded 19 at one time) and click the "Open" button at the lower left of the screen.

    Your emojis will be uploaded in a few seconds and they'll now be available on your iPhone for messaging.

    I don't think I've forgotten anything, so I think that's it.


    I hope someone finds this fun and useful!

    I edited the emojis I posted earlier. I think they look a little better now.
