Does any know how to create your own emoticons and have them show up large enough that people can see them. I have some that show up huge in your msg window, but anytime i have created my own by using an image or whatever, it shows up very small and no one can tell what it is.

any programs that do this? or any tips?

thanks guys

Look man most everything M$ touches is a problem or needs a work around. I asked a question a few weeks ago about getting one of those emotiocons out of MSN and nobody had a friggin' clue. M$ at it again. They make everything difficult.

But yeah you're welcome for the meaningful answer to your question.

ah, didn't know you could add them like that. But I haven't used MSN in months. Adium rules over my hotmail account now.

You probably wouldn't want to make the image 'as large as possible'. I'd say emoticons shouldn't be any larger than the ones here at Mac-Forums. Any larger, and I think they'd get annoying. Like those ridiculous talking emoticons appearing in banners. That's just excessive.

Anyway, you're spot on about the process. Photoshop for still ones, and Imageready for animated ones.
