Now that the Animoji image is in your clipboard. Paste the image into iCloud drive or any cloud storage provider you use. You can also paste the image in an email and mail it to yourself.

I have found that the size of the image when copied from an iPad is larger than that from an iPhone. So if you’re looking for higher resolution, try an iPad.
