Website Wednesday: Make your own poster

On Wednesdays I write about websites that I visit often.

I've been having fun with this site that allows you to upload a photo and create your own Obama campaign-inspired poster. Obamicon.Me

The standard captions are Hope, Change, and Progress. You can also type any text in. I changed Hope to Hopal for the dog, and made Change into Changel for the grey cat. George can't be made into anything, so she's just George. But I think her poster came out the best because of her inherent high-contrastedness.


Regardless of your politics, I hope you'll agree that it is a pretty neat way to create rather abstract art out of photos. Try it!
