Making word clouds with Wordle is fun: http://www.wordle.net/
They make a great addition to websites or you can print them out for gifts.
[Example – I framed one for a co-worker after using her name and adjectives to describe her.]
First click “Create.” Paste a bunch of text into the box (or use a website address). Then play around with the fonts, colors, and word positions.
- If you type the same word in the box multiple times (e.g., three or more), the larger it will appear in the final design.
- To save the final design, take a screen shot and then save it in a JPEG format or other suitable format.
- The FAQ page is quite helpful: http://www.wordle.net/faq
