A few years ago Emojis were still called Smileys and consisted only of letters or special characters. But with the spread of the smartphones, the triumph of small Emojis began. In various designs and colors, they are supposed to convey the mood of the chat partner.
However, many manufacturers do not fall back on Google’s predefined Emojis, but deliver their own fonts in their respective user interface and thus Emoji’s. Samsung goes one step further and gives you a new way of individualization with Land of Emojis.
Land of Emoji is a website where you can generate a personal Emoji using a photo. Currently you can only download this as a picture. Samsung will soon release an app in which you can download your personal set of Emojis to your smartphone.
The program does not require installation of an app, but works in any browser. There you upload a picture of yourself and from this is automatically created an Emoji, which sees your selfie partly as cut from the face. If this is not the case, you can then edit it at will, giving it your artistic touch.
Since the service is still in a beta, it makes quite a lot of mistakes. This can be reduced if you take the Selfie in front of a neutral background and look for good lighting. Otherwise you get fast, blue hair, on whose self a blue blanket in the background is to be seen. Or the beard disappears half as the contrast to the skin in other Selfie was not clear enough.
