Thing #12 – Image Generators

November 7, 2010




Image generators allow you to easily manipulate pictures and graphics to create fun images.

Some places to get started:

Generator Blog features hundreds of the best (and worst) of image generators. has a smaller (more manageable?) list of generators.
Card Catalogue Generator Something for the more old-school among you.
LOLBuilder is a tool that allows you to create your own LOLCats.  You can even upload your own photos to do so.
Wordle is a powerful webapp that generates static, and often quite pretty, word clouds.

Or, just Google “image generators” and play around with what you find.


To create an engaging message that people want to read.  And do this easily!


Create an image using an image generator.  You can select one from the Generator Blog, or from another generator that you’ve found.  Either right-click on the image to save it to your computer, or follow any instructions that come along with the generator telling you how to add the image to your site.  Add the image to your blog.


Share the result of your discovery process in your blog.  Post the image you made and talk about how and why you chose what you did.  Can you think of ways the library could use image generators to create images for the library or on the library website?  Name this blog post Thing #12.

Note: Be sure to include a link to the image generator itself, so other participants can discover it too.


Create an avatar, save it and export it to your blog.  Even if you don’t put the avatar on your blog, try creating one – a little virtual you.

Just google avatar creator, or try one of these sites. “Simpsonize” yourself! Turn yourself into an anime character. Create your personalized Mii. This one creates a moving avatar!

Note: Be sure to include a link to the image generator itself, so other participants can discover it too.
