#11 Play around with an online image generator.

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

For this discovery exercise, we want you to have even more fun than you’re already having! Find a few fun image or text generators to play around with and write a post in your blog about one of your favorites and the display the result. 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 your blog’s image button to add it to your post.

Resources:

The Generator Blog
Letter James
FD Toys
AvatarsYahoo Avatars, Meez, Speech Agents

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

Exercises:

1. Play around with some image generators and find one that you like.
2. Post the result of your discovery process in your blog.

OPTIONAL: Create an avatar (it’s really fun), save it and export it to your blog. (You can either download the image and then bring it into your blog via Add Image or export it and copy the code and paste it into your blog via “Edit Html” – a bit more techie). Even if you don’t put the avatar on your blog, try creating one – a little virtual you.

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!

  1. Help!! I might be being thick-headed, but I do not understand what we are supposed to do this week. I am confused!!!

  2. I had the most success with the TeAch-nology.com website. http://www.teach-nology.com/web_tools/rubrics/I very quickly generated a Listening Rubric. It certainly can be improved upon since it was not very detailed but it’s a start. I’d be curious to see if the rubrics on this site are all so simple. I’ll look at Persuasive Writing.
    Some other sites on the Generator Blog that look interesting to me are the Word Cloud one. I tried to put in the library mission statement but it didn’t take. I printed the trouble shooting information and will attempt to decipher.
    I thought that the Worldwide Blessing Generator might have some potential for a large Thanksgiving bulletin board we have created.

    With time, I’d look for some of these generators that I could post on the Fun Stuff for students that I have on my webpage.

  3. Whoops – on the message above this one, note that the beginning of my sentence is attached to the web address.

  4. Online image generators are more fun than I anticipated, but I only had time to view a few. These could definitely be addictive.

  5. this was fun. my avatar is on a snowmobile with an Everast back drop!

  6. I had a great time creating a magazine cover with a photo I uploaded from my new Facebook page. The site I used is http://bighugelabs.com
