Wordle is a tool for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends. wrdle-big.png
Unfortunately, we cannot print directly from WORDL on our Mac computers. However, we can take a "screen shot" of what we have created and then print that! It will save as "picture 1.png" on your desktop. To print, open the new document on your desktop, and print. Step by step directions are found below.
