17. Play with an online image generator

Generators? No, I’m not talking about those gas powered back-up things. The generators I’m talking about allow you to easily manipulate image and graphics to create fun images like these:














For this exercise, I just want you to have fun. Find a few fun image or text generators to play around with and write post in your blog about on of your favorites and the display the result. Often adding the image you mocked up to your blog is as simple as copying and pasting code that the page provides. If not, you may just need to right click on the image and then save it to your hard drive before using Blogger’s image button to add it to your post.

If you’re having difficulty getting your image added to a post in your blog, ask a co-worker for help. In looking at several staff blogs, it’s easy too that we have lots of people in the system who have figured out how easy it is to add images to their blog.

Also try searching for online generators, text generators or image generators


Exercise:

1. Play around with some image generators and find one that you like.
2. Post the result of your discovery process in your blog.
Note: Be sure to include a link to the image generator itself, so other participants can discover it too.

So take some time and have fun with this exercise. And remember to be tasteful too!

Sign Generator and Image Generator are a gas! I spent soooo much time playing that I had to make myself get back to "work" (yeah,right) endless possibilites.
