I am doing a presentation soon for a job interview (it's been a long time since I have done this)! Anyone know how to make a word cloud? If that's what it's called. Big bright words sometimes in the shape of a cloud on the your chosen topic....help appreciated grin

Just google it and find a website that does it - there are loads. Put in your words and generate it. If you want the words to be bigger then either put them in more times or some websites want you to put a numerical value next to the word - the higher the number the bigger the word. Click generate and it will make it, then you can reshuffle and play with shapes/fonts/colours til you are happy. I usually just screenshot a few as it is easier to put into a PowerPoint or other document as a picture than any other format.

Enjoy!

I've used Wordle before but as @eatthepineapple says there are lots of similar alternatives online. Good luck!

Oops. I'm not that excited by word clouds that I needed to say it twice!

Top tip, once you've written your words into the website, copy and paste them into a word document before you generate. So many times I have lost the list cos the website messed up and then it takes aaaages!!

I think you need java for wordle so won’t run on, for example, iPad
