What is Tagul about?^
Tagul is a web service that enables you to create gorgeous tag clouds (aka word clouds) that you can place on your webpage or share with friends. Tagul clouds have numerous advantages against ordinary text clouds like words inside words feature, fancy fonts, various cloud shapes, customizable colors, etc. It makes Tagul clouds look so gorgeous.
How to print a cloud?^
Go to Grab&Share section. Click on “Save graphic image (PNG)”. Save it and then print the saved image.
How can I make tags links to point to my site?^
You need to edit “Tags’ links pattern” in “Tags source” tab to point to your site and then click Visualize.
How to strip common words?^
Just open “Filter common words” tab and add the words you want to filter.
How to disable repetition of words?^
Check “Keep as is” box for “Tags amount” on Appearance tab.
How to open a cloud saved in SVG (vector format) in Adobe Illustrator^
Adobe Illustrator doesn’t support SVG format. But you can download and install Inkscape. In Inkscape please use File->Import (not File->Open) and choose your SVG saved cloud. Then you can edit, print or save your cloud in EPS format that is suitable for Adobe Illistruator, Photoshop and other imaging software.
Can I import my list of tags/words in any format?^
Export your tags in CSV format with semicolon as the separator using “word;weight;color;angle;font;url” format (see example below) and paste it in text field to load them into your cloud.
CSV example (all collumns except the first one are optional, you can leave them empty):
Can I use excel for editing my tags list?^
Sure. Just create an excel spreadsheet with your tags data (see the screenshot below).
Then copy it (without header) and paste to your cloud text field.
Once it is done click Visualize button and your tags will be automatically copied to the list.
What is words weight?^
The words weight specifies how heavy the word is. The heavier the word is the bigger it will be in your cloud. Use this parameter to control your words size.
How to make background transparent?^
If you want to make background transparent go to “Colors and Animations” section and move alpha slider to the left (see bottom right corner of the screenshot below):
Then save your cloud. That’s it. The below are some examples of demo cloud with transparent background.
