If you like looking at memes (pictures, usually of people, with some pithy or amusing comment which hopefully goes viral) then try the Meme generator. Find your picture, add in your text and save then share it. Jobs a good-un!
You'll have seen these, even if you're not sure of what they're called. Images which have a snappy/funny/sarcastic/etc comment on them which get shared around the internet. Pronounced as 'meem', not 'me-me' in case you were wondering. If you want to create your own there are a few places that you can try. I'd start with the Meme Generator which has thousands of images for you to choose from - people, celebrities, items and so on. Just add in your caption above and below and save it. Simple as you like. It's a bit annoying though that you can only do captions at top and bottom, and you've got a limited amount of space - if you write too much your font size just gets smaller and smaller. Here's an example that I created:
Another good choice is Memesly which works in the same way, but has a different set of images that you can play with. However, the search function was much poorer, so I had to take pretty much what I could get. This is my attempt:
If you have a need to create certificates quickly and easily there's a nice tool over at DyeTub which does the job for you. They have a free online certificate maker - I've not tried it myself, but it looks just what you need - if you need to make certificates!
Like those amusing little discussions on smartphones? Want to make your own? Then try the SMS conversation generator. Simply type in a conversation, then save it, and embed it. Great for pretend conversations, discussions that may or may not have taken place in history, or for cinema quotes:
Clipartlord.com has a wide variety of graphics, and most of them are in public domain, but they do tell you what is and what isn't, and they're clear on what you're allowed to do. There were a nice collection of book/library images, and there were also some animated gifs as well. Great for children to use.
Comics starring YOU and your Friends. This little tool lets you create stories based on your Facebook friends. You can create avatars and then pop them into interesting or fun situations. This is my first attempt, just with me in the picture:
Create and Share Social Comics.From the site: Comic Mashup uses your social profile to generate fun web comics. Connect your facebook account to get started. Then, share your comics with your family and friends on facebook. The more visitors your send to your comic, the more votes it will get. Not entirely sure why or where the votes thing comes in. Can't people just do stuff for the fun of doing it, without worrying about votes, badges or some other competitive element?
Fun Pet Pictures for Cat and Dogs. I never fail to be amazed at what I can find on the Internet. I'm not making this up I promise. There is now a site that you can go to in order to make a drivers license for your pet. I have no words left.
