You probably like emoji because it is funny and when you send a message, it can represent your feeling well. You are able to do that on Discord. But, can we make it by yourself? Is there any emoji maker? First, we are going to tell you about what emoji is.
Emoji is ideogram and smiley. These are usually used in electronic messages and web pages. Emoji is available in various genres such as common objects, facial expressions, types of weather, places and also animals. Cartoon can also be used as an emoji. Emojis are similar with emoticons but emojis are actual pictures instead of typographics. You may want to know where the word Emoji comes from. This word comes from Japanese “e” which means “picture” and also “moji” which means “character”. This word is almost the same as the English words emotion and emoticon which is purely coincidental. In 2010, Emoji started to be popular worldwide after it is added to several mobile operating systems.
If you want to create an emoji, you are able to do that from any image or you are also able to use free apps such as Imoji and Bitmoji, or an online creator such as PiZap. In PiZap, you are able to make an emoji by clicking on Start button. Then, there will be some options including Edit, Collage, Design, Touch Up, Emoji Maker, Facebook Cover, Twitter Cover and Youtube Cover. So, the one that you have to choose is Emoji Maker.
Now, you may want to know how to upload an emoji for Discord on PC or Mac. First, you have to open Discord. If you’re using Windows, you are able to find it in the Windows menu. If you are using Mac, you can look on the Dock or in the Launchpad. Then, you have to choose a server. You can see the Servers which are listed along the left side of the screen. For your information, any emoji you upload can only be used on the server you select. Now, click on three dashes near the top of the screen, to the right of the server’s name. Now, click on Server Settings and then click on Emoji. After that, click on Upload Emoji and then Select emoji to upload. If you want to get the best results, you can choose images that are at least 128 x 128 pixels. They will be resized to 32 x 32 pixels if it is uploaded. After that, you can click on Open or Save. And now, your emoji will be uploaded to the Discord server.
For your information, custom emojis are also only able to be used in the server on which they were uploaded. If you are trying to upload emoji that you have downloaded from another Discord server, you will receive an error message. It is important to know that you can upload a maximum of 50 custom emoji per server and Discord will sort your custom emojis by the server so they’ll be easy to find.
