Random words in different directions

Postby Robino » Wed Jan 27, 2010 7:52 pm

I know I saw software where you type in, let's say 5 random words and it puts these words horizontal, vertical, different colors randomly -- I swear it was on this forum or maybe ProShow -- does anyone know software that does this???

Thanks Robin

Hi Robin, I checked around and can't find anything like that mentioned in a post here.
Might have use the wrong keywords for the search though, hard to say.

It could be ProShow, it could also be HeroGlyph or Bluff Titler.
I seem to remember something about this but can't find the original post anywhere.

No, you don't download it. It's a Java applet that runs in your browser on the "wordle create" web page (http://www.wordle.net/create). You can enter the words you want it to use or let it pull them from a web page that has an RSS feed. The words in the sample came from this forum's RSS feed, for example.

After you load the words, the application will draw the page. You can keep hitting the randomize button until you see something you like or you can play with the menu options (language, font, layout, and color). I used the "print Screen" button on my keyboard to make a screen capture and cropped the screen capture in Photoshop. The image is slightly larger than standard definition. If you have an application that installed a print to pdf function that looks like a printer to windows (Acrobat distiller, for example), you can use the Print function and direct the output to that if you wish.

I've used it a few times, but it's not something that I would use on a regular basis.

Here's a full size sample using a custom color palette and this page's address was given as the RSS feed source:
