(Added 2015)

Although this image generator post is way out of date and I could have updated it. I left it so you can see how far we’ve come, since 2008. with the type and variety of image tools available online today. It’s not just the post that’s aged – it’s disconcerting to see how much younger I looked 7 years ago.


As I was preparing my recent posts on images I came across image generator tools you may find a place for in some of your less serious posts.

Why would you want to create silly images?:

  • As a break from tedious work.
  • You need more practice perfecting procrastination
  • To add special effect images to your blog and possibly get them Stumbleupon Photoblogged – hint hint.
  • You wantto be a star contributor on:
    • icanhascheezerburger sites (lolcats, loldogs, pundit kitchen….), althouth they do provide their own generator (if you need to learn lolcat speak try the Definitive Lolcats Glossary
  • Just to be silly – the only reason needed?

Thanks to the Generator Blog for putting me onto some of the image generator tools – it would have saved me a lot of time if I had found this site to begin with.
