emoticons & smilies for Mac

I bought a Macbook Pro about a year ago. I have yet to find a program that is compatible to Mac where I can put smile faces & emoticons in my emails! Does anyone know of any? "Smiley Central", "Incredimail", & other programs that are compatible with PC's don't work on Mac.

I've never heard of any such program for a Mac.. what email program/service are you using ? If you're using something like Yahoo mail or MSN, you can use the Emoticon 'codes', which you can see HERE .

Another thing you could do is go to  any site with emoticons, right-click or Command-Click each emoticon, save it to a folder on your Mac, then just drag 'n drop the image files from where you saved them into your email messages (i think that should work!).  I would try it but i'm a tough-guy and if i emailed any of my friends a message with emoticons they would call me a girly-man.. :-)

Thank you ever-so much for your response hubby. You seem to be helping me out a lot on this site! I went to the Apple store & had them help me with this matter. We did set up a folder with smiles & emoticons but it is kind of a hassle to pull things out of a folder & then have to drop them in your email. Also the emoticons don't move, they remain stagnant. I use to have a PC and everything was compatible with that. I'm frustrated with my Mac! I thought that someone on this site might have another suggestion. You would think by now someone would of developed a program with smileys & emoticons for Mac mail!

Guess there isnt a big demand by Mac users for smileys ?

No, i think you have it backwards.. We are so happy we just dont need to compensate by putting smileys in our emails :-)

I love emoticons , i have a Mac and love that too. There are some small emoticon type things in the Special Characters feature, they have to be enlarged but are better than nothing however i am now looking for some to download.

I totally agree w/ Bobee about someone should have developed a program with smileys & emoticons for Mac mail! We like the cute smileys too!

Re: emoticons & smilies for Mac
Dear Hubby.... why do people use terms like "girly man" when they wish to be disparaging. There must be some non-gender put downs. Anyway as long as emoticons are used sparingly whether from male or female they are just Fun. Over use is not good. I suppose a tough guy could always send a growly face or something more like a "real" man. I love my Mac and would also like to be able to use emoticons if i feel like it. I do use the special characters from time to time but as mentioned before they do need enlarging and they are only outlines but we take what we can get. Thank you for any help given to us. Susan

I have found the answer, and it works! I have been using it for 2+ years now. http://www.deeindesign.com/blog/2010/01/embed-animated-gifs-in-entourage...

The newest version of Mac OS X Lion includes a built-in Emoji font - all the smileys and funny icons we could wish for!

Just open your Character Viewer and you can copy & paste them into anything that supports Emoji .. the official Font name is "Apple Color Emoji"

Mac Emoji Font!

I will look for this Apple Color Emoji. I've seen the word Emoji, so it must be somewhere in this machine. Oh, god--I should have been Amish!!

Re: emoticons & smilies for Mac
Thanks for this tip but I'm sorry for being stupid here but I see the emoticons but can't figure out how to get the image into my email. I did a copy and past information and got text but no image. Also I'd like to be able to have the emoticon option on my toolbar as a shortcut but don't see how I can do this. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.
