Create a custom emoji

Here's how to create a custom emoji from Slack on the desktop app or a web browser. 🖥 ✨

  1. Click your team name in the top left to open the menu.
  2. Select Customize Slack. This will open your team site.
  3. Click the Emoji tab.
  4. Choose a name for your new custom emoji.
  5. Click the Choose File button to select a file. 

    Images can be JPG, GIF, or PNG, up to 128 pixels in width and height, and a maximum 64KB file size. We recommend using a small, square picture, as Slack will resize the image to fit neatly inside a row of text. 

  6. Click Save New Emoji. A confirmation message will appear and you can upload your next emoji.
  7. You can also review or delete custom emoji, or set an alias for an existing emoji from the Customize page.

Note: You can't create custom emoji in our mobile apps, but you can still use custom emoji by typing the code.

Keep in mind: Some teams may choose to restrict custom emoji uploads to Team Owners or Admins. If you’re unable to upload custom emoji, contact a Team Owner for help.
