If you find yourself searching free graphics sites like Morgue File, Stock.exchange, or royalty free sites like StockFresh, iStockPhoto, or BigStockPhoto but unable to find the perfect graphic for your blog post, try these sites instead where you can create exactly what you want.
What can you do? Feature the best quote or line from your post on a sticky note or tag, name a street in honor of your post, create a cloud of the main words from your post or set your words on fire!
Wigfip allows you to generate various graphics with your own text on them. You can also create images like the three below. www.wigflip.com
This site lets you create a “cloud” of words from any text or feed you’d like. These two examples are generated from my blog feed and words I’ve used frequently in recent posts. You can choose the colors, fonts and style. www.wordle.net
Set your text on fire, make it brushed metal, or try one of dozens of other effects. www.flamingtext.com
Cool Text is similar to Flaming Text but also allows you to put your text on buttons like this panic button. www.cooltext.com
Fake Magazine Cover
Put yourself (or any photo you’ve got) on the cover of dozens of different magazines. www.fakemagazinecover.com
