How to Create Skype Emoticons and Smileys?

Emoticons and smileys are pictures that you can add to an instant message chat using a simple combination of symbols found on the keyboard. They are usually used for expressing an emotion or sentiment such as love or anger, but they can also express less specific ideas, as in the case of the bandit or emo smileys. Enhancing your textual message with a smiley is a fun way to spice up your conversation in Skype.
