Emoticons by -Bogan- on 08-06-2007 at 01:19 PM

Hey guys I'm wanting to make a gif for my mates band and use it as an emoticon. But when I import it to msn it is shrunken so bad you can't read it.

Any idea what program or process I can use to import it at full size?

Cheers for the help in advance!

nope. custom emoticons have a maximum width/height. even if you did get a program to make it full size, your contact would still see it at reduced size

Hmmmm then how do you get loads of random emoticons clearly not default on msn and at a reasonable size?

Well you could always span the message across up to 5 custom emotes. A word on each or something... just an idea =]

But that wouldn't stop it getting shrunk the other way (N)

For static emoticons, the size limit is 19x19 pixels. For animated emoticons, the size limit is up to 50x50 pixels.

By animated emoticon you meen wink? how do you make msn realize it is a animated emoticon? It's a .gif file extension should it not see that already!

If not how did people get there own emoticons on msn without using a package? I know it can be done just how...
