First Words Taxedo / Tagxedo Tutorial

I had some positive comments on my post about Joss’ first words and some readers were interested in how I created this little picture showing her new words. I used a website called Taxedo / Tagxedo and thought I’d do a little tutorial so that you can do the same! It’s at www.tagxedo.com

You can either point Tagxedo to a website, your blog perhaps, and have a tag cloud created out of common words on the site, or write a string of words as I did.

You may need to install Tagxedo first:

Click save and share to save your design and upload to your blog as you would any photograph, and remember that you cannot use Tagxedo for commercial purposes! Oh and it’s quite addictive!

  1. This is great, thanks so much! I have been wondering for ages how people get the words in to a shape, as I have previously used a similar word cloud generator, but it only puts them in a random spoldge, so this is great :)

  2. Hi, coming over from Pintorials. This is such a fab thing, thanks soo much for sharing. Think I’ll have to do this for my little one and frame it for her room.
