I recently came across a really cool word cloud tool, WordArt.com. I quite liked it, so I thought I’d share, and it makes for a fluffy post from a currently very fluffy brain.
I wanted to create a word cloud for a page on my site because I realized that I didn’t actually have the rights to be using the one I’d come across somewhere on the web. I tried a couple that weren’t particularly user friendly, but WordArt was. You can input your words, and set which words appear the biggest and which ones the smallest. You can change your word density, the shape, colours, and fonts.
You don’t have to sign up to create a design, but you do if you want to keep it saved on their site. It’s free to use, with no annoying ads; there’s only a charge if you want to get high quality images for commercial use.
The blogging images were all made with the same word list, and just tweaked in different ways using the shapes available in WordArt. The bottom graphic comes from an image I uploaded to WordAart. I’m quite happy to have discovered this handy little tool. And no, this isn’t a sponsored post or anything like that.
Do you have any cool graphics tools that you use?
