FAQ

What is Tagul about?^

Tagul is a web service that enables you to create gorgeous word clouds (aka tag clouds) that you can place on your webpage or share with friends. Tagul clouds look gorgeous because of fancy features like words inside words, beautiful fonts, various cloud shapes, customizable colors, etc.

How to print a cloud?^

Go to “Grab and Share” section and click on PNG icon with desired quality. Save it and then print it as any other image.

I’ve just saved a cloud to my computer. Where can I find it?^

Your browser may have saved the cloud to Downloads folder without notificating you. Please have a look there. This behavior can be changed in your browser settings.

The size of words doesn’t seem accurate, how to fix it?^

Your cloud by default uses “Maximize” option for “Words relative size” parameter in “Layout” section. It means that words will be maximized to the available space when placed. Change it to “Keep as is” to tell Tagul to use “Size” value from “Words” section when placing words.

How to make all words the same size?^

Unfortunately (due to algorithm behind Tagul nature) it is not possible to make all words *exactly* the same size. Tagul algorithm tries to fill selected shape at the first place sacrificing the accuracy of words sizes. The best you can do is to choose “define” for “Words relative size” in “Layout” section and move the slider to the most left position. This will make Tagul try keeping all the words the same size as much as possible.

How can I make words links to point to my site?^

When you import the words (either from text or web URL) just change “links pattern” field to point to your site.

How to disable repetition of words?^

Check “Keep as is” box for “Words amount” in Layout section.

How to make PNG background transparent?^

There is a slider below color picker for background color (in Colors and Animations section) that controls alpha channel of background color. Just move it to the most left position to make background transparent. Then you can save it as PNG without background.

Can I import my list of words in any format?^

Prepare words data in CSV format with semicolon as the separator using “word;weight;color;angle;font;url” format (see example below). Then click “Import from text” button in Words section and paste words data in the text field to load them into your cloud.

CSV example (all collumns except the first one are optional, you can leave them empty):
Cloud;36;ffff00;0;Teen bold;http://www.google.com/search?q=Cloud
Demo;32;00ff00;0;Bangers Regular;http://www.google.com/search?q=Demo
non;12;;;;http://www.google.com/search?q=Demo
eget;10;
sed;8

Can I use excel for editing my tags list?^

Yes you can. Create an excel spreadsheet with your tags data (see the screenshot below).
