To create an animated emoji for Twitch, you'll need two things:

  1. Photoshop.
  2. Any GIF animation (you can create it yourself or cut/download it from any video).

Steps to Create the Required Animation

  • Open our animation in Photoshop;
  • Make sure the timeline is enabled.

- If it's not enabled, go to the "Window" section and then enable "Timeline".

Remember, there are limitations for GIFs on Twitch:

  1. It must be a square file in GIF format.
  2. File size must not exceed 1MB.
  3. It should have a resolution between 112 x 112 and 4096 x 4096 px.
  4. It cannot contain more than 60 frames.
