Express yourself with custom emojis

Every communication platform has its own built-in emoji keyboard other than our direct devices: Twitch, Discord, Slack, WhatsApp, and Facebook all give us over hundreds of emojis for us to use. But what if none of them represent the exact way you feel or react to a message?

Kapwing’s custom emoji maker equips you with countless stickers, shapes, GIFs, and more emojis to make your own custom emoji for any way you feel. Sometimes, it’s difficult for us to come up with words that describe how we feel. Emojis elevate and illustrate almost everyone’s communication style. Besides, it’s nice to get a laugh out of a customized emoji or feel relatable to a custom emoji.

How to Make Custom Emojis

How to Make Custom Emojis
  1. Start a project
    Upload an emoji you want to customize or start with a blank canvas and choose an emoji using Kapwing’s media library.
  2. Customize emoji
    Resize your emoji to the recommended dimensions (128px by 128px or 180px by 180px). Make your emoji transparent by removing the background, then add other emoji features, filters, stickers, GIFs, and more using Kapwing’s copyright-free media library in the left sidebar.
  3. Export and share
    Export your own custom emoji as a JPEG or PNG and send it to others online.

The Most Equipped Custom Emoji Maker Online

With over hundreds of emojis, stickers, GIFs, images, and more creative assets, Kapwing’s custom emoji maker equips anyone with everything you need to make your own custom emoji. Oftentimes, we want to make custom emojis for Discord to send to our friends in our communities, or we want to create custom emotes for Twitch to gift subscribers with exclusive emotes to use in the Twitch chat during a livestream.

With Kapwing’s well-equipped smart toolkit, you can easily remove the background and make an emoji transparent in one click using their Remove Background tool. Resize your emojis to fit Discord, Twitch, Slack, and any other communication platform by adjusting your canvas’s dimensions. The recommended emoji size ranges from 128px by 128px (for Discord and Slack) and 180px by 180px (for Twitch), which you can enter custom dimensions in your image editor.

Use Kapwing to make custom emojis on your phone, computer, or tablet by opening the image editor directly in your web browser. After you’ve finished creating your own emoji, download the file and upload to your desired communication platform. You can also copy and paste your emoji URL link to share with others and have them edit the project to make their own version of your custom emoji. Start expressing yourself more clearly through emojis, and lessen the possibility of getting lost in translation!

Best online video service ever. And a miracle for deaf people.
[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
