Friends vs Emojis Tutorial

I really enjoyed  this assignment and would recommend it for anyone who loves emojis..and/or their friends! This assignment is pretty self-explanatory, so I knew what I wanted to do for it, but I think the biggest struggle in completing it is finding a good resource to construct it with. That is what I am going to help students with today!

So this first couple steps of this assignment are simple.

1)Find an emoji/emojis you would like to use.

2) Find a friend/friends you would like to use.

Now this is where I come in to help. I found an extremely helpful wesbiste called BeFunky.This is the site I used to create my emoji/friend mash up.

When you get to the homepage of the site, there are three tabs at the top of the page.

Once you click the Collage Maker tab, this screen will pop up. You select the third icon on the side bar with the four squares. This is the display layout tab. Once you get there, you click Create Your Own.

Once you do this, your blank canvas will appear. Then you go to the first icon on the left hand side to import pictures from your computer.

Once you have imported your pictures, they will appear in the image manager.

You simply drag them wherever you want on the page. You can layer them or align them; it is up to you. You can do the same with text boxes. There is an array of fonts and colors to chose from for your text.

Once you are satisfied with your creation, you go to the top of the page and click save. From the save button you can  export it to social media or just save it on your computer.

And there you have it! Hope this helped people who are stumped with what to use to make their creation!

Here is my final product using the site!
