Putting product images in Zazzle forum posts

Having seen folks new to the forums at Zazzle asking how to put their product images into forum posts, I thought I'd create a video tutorial showing the simplest and quickest way, using only pointing, clicking, copying and pasting.

How to get your product images into a forum post

This is aimed at the completely non-technical user and requires no knowledge other than the standard point, click, copy and paste mouse techniques. And let's face it, if you're looking at this page - you're already qualified!

If you found this as easy to follow as I've claimed, please share with others who will benefit. Thanks and I look forward to seeing you on the Zazzle forum :)

Happy Zazzling!

Wordle word-art tool

Here's a great tool I found for creating posters, mugs etc with a message...


Here's an example of a motivational mug that I made using Wordle:
Motivational Words #2 ringer mug mug
Wordle makes the word-art from bunches of text, assigning a larger font size for more frequently occurring words (but ignoring common ones like "and", "the", "but" and so on). The main way to use it is to paste in a bunch of text (try one of the Anglo Saxon epics like "Beowulf", for a laugh) but there are a couple of other options you can use instead (or in addition - check out the advanced tab). Find Wordle here and make posters you can print on your own printer!

I can think of one great use for it.. Is your team in work working on a new project? Worlde is perfect to put together team-values or team-building motivational posters.

Share some examples on how you might use it if you like! Maybe paste into your comment the words you used. See more examples of what I used it for.

Have fun!!
