#10 Play Around with Image Generators

Listen to the podcast!

Feeling creative? I hope so because it's your time to shine! Thing #10 is going to introduce you to a variety of fun and free online image generators that allow you to easily manipulate graphics, photos, and text to create fun images like these:

Wordle: Civil Librarian

This "thing" is all about fun so relax and have a good time. Find a few fun image or text generators to play around with and write a post in your blog about one of your favorites, displaying the result, too. With some image generators, you can just copy and paste the code from the generator right into your blog. With others, you might have to right-click your new image, save it to your computer desktop, and then upload it using your blog's image button.

As always, if you have any difficulties, ask a friend for help!
