Image Generators

Listen to audio here

Image Generators are websites that allow you to easily manipulate images.

For this discovery exercise, we want you to find a few fun image or text generators to play around with and write a post in your blog about one of your favorites and/or display the result. Often adding the image you mocked up to your blog is as simple as copying and pasting code that the page provides. If not, you may just need to right click on the image and then save it to your hard drive before using the 'insert image' icon (little picture button) to add it to your post. If you’re having difficulty getting your image added to a post in your blog please contact us.

Discovery Exercise:

1. Play around with some image generators and find one that you like.

2. Post the result of your discovery process in your blog.
Note: Be sure to include a link to the image generator itself, so other participants can discover it too. Take some time and have fun with this exercise. And remember to be tasteful too!
