31. Let's have a little fun this week!

There are a lot of free fun tools out there that let you play with your photos. Let's take a look at a couple. Up first from ALA create your own READ poster. You can upload your own photo and choose from 4 different layouts. You can seen some your coworkers have done on MRRL’s Flickr account. If you want me to add yours just email it to me, but you don't have to,.

Read poster

Second is dumpr, which lets up insert a photo of you into a variety of different backgrounds and other cool things.

Created with dumpr.net

Last but hardly least, HeroMachine let's you create your own super hero. No skill with a pen or pencil required.

I made a few posters last week. It started out as an innocent poster making activity but turned into an obsession. Make it stop!

The hero machine is definitely addictive, but almost too many choices to make. It's hard to make just one.

I'd made one of those Great works of art being admired previously (maybe in 2.0) putting in a piece of art my daughter had done (for a birthday gift) emailed it around and showing it off. So now I had a lot of fun with the hero-machine - I agree with Nikki, that there are an awful lot of choices/decisions to to make. And I get paid to do it

I've used the hero machine before, but can't remember what I created. So, I made YinYang, defender of balance. He looks nothing like me, other than being short. I am a bit jealous of his purple tights and extreme handlebar moustache, though.

I always wondered how people were doing these cool things....and now I know! This is something I will enjoy playing with for sure. Thanks for adding this to the lessons. It's just fun!

Hero machine is loads of fun. I too, could not decide on what to design. I didn't see the read posters because I couldn't find them. Way too many pages to flip through and they weren't a set. I would like to try the read posters for school.

The hero machine is soooo much fun. I am gong to share that site with my son. I think that he will enjoy it even more that I did.
