Bitstrips was a popular app that allowed you to create your own comic strips using personalized, animated avatars. You could design your own character, add your friends as co-stars, and choose from various scenes and stories to express yourself in a fun and creative way. Bitstrips was acquired by Snapchat in 2016 and the original app was shut down, but you can still use its spin-off app, Bitmoji, which is similar to Bitstrips but focuses more on emoji and stickers.
In this article, we will show you how to use Bitmoji on your laptop, so you can enjoy making and sharing your own comics with your friends.
Step 1: Download Bitmoji App
Bitmoji is available as a free app for iPhone and Android devices. You can download it from the App Store or Google Play Store. Alternatively, you can also use Bitmoji as a Chrome extension on your laptop. To do that, go to https://www.bitmoji.com and click on the \"Get Bitmoji for Chrome\" button. Then follow the instructions to install the extension on your browser.
Step 2: Sign in with Snapchat or Email
Once you have downloaded or installed Bitmoji, you need to sign in with your Snapchat account or email address. If you don't have a Snapchat account, you can create one for free. Signing in with Snapchat will allow you to use your Bitmoji in Snapchat chats and stories. Signing in with email will allow you to use your Bitmoji in other apps and platforms that support it.
Step 3: Create Your Avatar
After signing in, you can start creating your avatar. You can choose from a variety of options to customize your appearance, such as hair style, skin tone, eye color, facial features, clothing, accessories, and more. You can also take a selfie and let Bitmoji create an avatar that looks like you. You can edit your avatar anytime by clicking on the avatar icon on the top left corner of the app or extension.
Step 4: Choose Your Comic Style
Now that you have your avatar ready, you can choose what kind of comic you want to make. You can tap or click on the pencil icon on the bottom menu of the app or extension to access the comic builder. You can choose from three formats: status comics, friend comics, or greeting cards. Status comics are for expressing your mood or situation. Friend comics are for interacting with your friends' avatars. Greeting cards are for sending special messages to your friends.
Step 5: Select Your Scene and Story
Once you have chosen your comic format, you can select a scene and a story that suits your purpose. You can browse through different categories and themes, such as #Good,#Bad,#Weird,#Funny,#Romantic,#Holidays,#Sports,#Work,#School, and more. You can also search for specific keywords or phrases using the magnifying glass icon on the top right corner of the app or extension.
Step 6: Edit and Share Your Comic
After selecting your scene and story, you can edit your comic by changing the text, adding stickers or emojis, resizing or repositioning your avatars, changing the background color, and more. You can also add more friends as co-stars by tapping or clicking on the +Co-star button on the top of the app or extension. When you are happy with your comic, you can share it with your friends by tapping or clicking on the share icon on the top right corner of the app or extension. You can choose from various options to share your comic, such as Snapchat, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Instagram Stories, Twitter, Email, SMS, and more.
