I’m finding it hard to be funny every week, increasing my respect for humor columnist everywhere. I’ve decided to expand to some cool technology tools or fun links. (Though I won’t be nearly as complete in my lists as Jane Hart, who adds a new learning tool each day.)
This week, I recommend checking out Image Chef. I’m not a graphic designer, but this site allows me to create some pretty simple graphics with just a few clicks. I can customize a puzzle image, create something that looks like a Polaroid, or even an ID card (perfect for those new employee training courses). Oh, and it’s free!
The taxi image above was created in Image Chef. I was able to customize the sign on the cab. Since we’ve just wrapped up an e-learning course that uses a GPS system as a learning agent, I’ve been looking at a lot of images of signs and cars and thinking about how they would fit into the course. This would have been perfect if I’d needed a cab in the course.
