17. Make a word cloud – WordItOut http://worditout.com Much like Wordle, this tool creates word clouds out of any text that you paste into the text box. The application allows the word cloud to be customized by size, font, and color scheme. Word It Out also allows the user to ignore certain words and thus keeps them out of the word cloud. It can be used without a login, although the saving option requires an email. You can work around this option by right clicking to save as jpeg and/or screen print.
