Online: Wordle-Cool Online Text Tool

Ok, I love computer based toys whether it is new software, games, or online tools. Today I came across Wordle. It will take any text you put in and turn it into a typographical image using the words. Like a tag cloud, the words that are used the most  show up in a larger font. You can also choose an online site, such as your blog (in this case Sisley-Blinn Blog page) for the text. You can randomize your image to create various style views and even delete words you don’t want. If  you add your image to the Gallery, you get the option to Print or put the code for your image on your site. This is a free tool, for now. Read more on the Wordle Blog or go to the advanced page. Very cool!

Using your own words, relative sizes and hex colors for text and background on the advanced page will give you additional control.
