Get Started Creating Word Clouds

This video explains how to customize a word cloud using our word cloud generator.  After watching this tutorial on how to create word clouds, you will be ready to dive in and start building your personalized word cloud art.

 

ADVANCED TUTORIAL 

How to Combine Your Created Word Clouds with Customizable Graphics.

This wordcloud tutorial video shows a powerful technique for taking the word cloud you create from our online wordcloud generator and adding them to our customizable graphics. The result of doing this will give you a new spin on creating word clouds that your viewers will love.

After you make a word cloud, open a customizable graphic in the online customizer app, then load the word art you made into the custom graphic word area. Once in place, click build custom graphic, and it will output the custom graphic with your word cloud embedded in it.  

 

 

How to Create a Word Cloud from Scratch.

Starting from scratch is another option as you begin to create a word cloud. There will be no design loaded in when you open the word cloud creator and start from scratch. At first, this can seem a little overwhelming as you think; where do I begin. No worries, check out this quick video tutorial below to see how you can quickly start creating a design scratch.

 

Add your word clouds to PowerPoint slides.

So what do you do once you have your word cloud created? Well, if you are using presentation software like PowerPoint, Google Slides, Keynote, or Prezi, you can easily insert it into your slides as an image. Using our animated PowerPoint templates is a great way to call attention to essential points or concepts in the presentation you create. 

Have fun, be creative, and start creating some awesome word cloud art.

Dear PresenterMedia team, this new feature is fantastic! I would also love if there was an option to create a text shape out of words. Let's say for instance I specify the words "Presenter Media" as text shape. The feature would then "draw" this text shape out of some provided words (e. g. Graphic, Clipart, PPT, Keynote, etc.). Best regards, Alex

Dear PresenterMedia team, you are the best! I love the customer the text . Well I will speak on my language - portughese. Pessoal do PresenterMedia, vocês são demais! Amei seus textos para customizar e achei muito fácil e prático o programa de customização. Gosto muito da criatividade dos seus templates. Vocês são competentes e acessíveis, até para os mais leigos. Gostaria de sugerir que vocês também incluíssem o item Religião. Um abraço cordial em toda a equipe.

I kept waiting to see if you could add a shape that you created yourself to the list of shapes. I didn't see that option and now am hoping this change can be added.

For my work on climate change, would love to see a thermometer and a human footprint added to the list of available shapes! Love the new feature!

Having some trouble figuring out how the weights work. Have a word weighted at 500, and another at 475 (and others down to 150), and the 500 is MUCH larger than the 475. Seems odd. Ahh, I see - it has to do with the relative lengths of the words! So it's a bit tricky to figure out the right weights.

Judd
Hi Mark, Yes, the lengths will also affect how big the words can be. If it's a longer word, it might help change the "rotate words options" to random or rotate them, so the word you want bigger has more room to fill inside the selected shape.

Can't figure out how to get a clear background so I can just use the word cloud without a background. Thoughts?
Nov 17, 2021 -
Judd
Hi Jane, There is an option where you can select to download as either a JPEG or a PNG. The PNG option is the one that supports a clear background. This option is at the bottom of the app, where it says download format. Choose to download as a PNG instead of a JPG. You will then get the word cloud with a clear background. Let us know if you need any further help. Thanks.

I would like to second the request made by Michael "Miles" to have the ability to add a shape that you created yourself. For example, I could use a map of the US as a shape.

Judd
Hi BJ, The word cloud generator was recently updated; you can now use an image you upload to your (My Media & Uploads). Go to the Shapes option in the generator and find where it says "Use Your Own Shape" on the far right of the shape options. Then click Upload Media to upload your image. Note - The image needs to be in a .png format. An updated tutorial video will be coming soon.

Hi Alex, The word cloud generator was recently updated; you can now use text as a shape to generate a word cloud. Go to the SHAPES options and check on the text as shape option on the far left. Then, replace the field where it says TEXT with your word.

Hi Judd, I tested it and it is working great and looking fantastic! Great craftsmanship again of the team! Thanks a lot, Alex

A couple of follow-ups to the "use your own shape" feature. 1. Don't try to click on the "Use Your Own Shape." Click on the "Your Media" button below it. 2. Once you've chosen a PNG image, click on the "Add to Project" column to get it transferred over to the Word Cloud Generator.

When adding a PNG shape the word cloud covers the entire graphic area, not inside the shape. How do I keep the cloud in the shape?

Could you send us a message at support@presentermedia.com with your PNG attached. Also which shape you are trying to use and we can take a look at it. Thank you.

Your presentations are going to be amazing!
