Custom shapes are available

SVG logoHello everyone!

Today I’ve good news for you.

I’ve finally implemented the feature I am requested too often – custom shapes on the Tagul site.
You no longer need to subscribe to API to create clouds with custom shapes.

The custom shapes allows you to create beautiful clouds like in the gallery.

    I like the shapes. I’d like to know how you apply hypertext links to the words in the cloud. This would be very useful for educational tools.

    I’m not finding any information on this. Do you have any documentation you are willing to share?

    Thank you,
    Saundra Romero

    I am trying to create a magnet shape (horse shoe) but can’t figure out how to create that custom shape?? What do I need to do?

    • Alex says:

      Prepare image in png format. In appearence tab choose ‘custom’. Then click on rectangle with shape preview and select your image. Adjust it using sliders if needed and click visualize button to make your cloud.

    What a great creation! I’m interested in the text-within-text feature, and used Illustrator > create outline > save as PNG to export the shape for the word ‘want.’ I was hoping to fill the word shape with tags, or wrap the tags around the word shape, but instead the tags trace the shape outline. Any tips?

    Can I do clouds in the shape of numbers?

  5. Kyshari says:

    I don’t know how to change the words in my cloud, or change the shape of it.

  6. it’s possible to have a spanish version?

  7. Any way that you could use a URL for the custom image? I’m downloading a lot of things just to send then back to you? But AWESOME feature.

    I can’t change the picture! It stays a circle no matter what! I can’t change it to a rectangle, star, custom, etc.

    Hi Alex,

    I am looking for a custom make word world map. I hatched upon an idea to essentially depict the world (using a 2D map) with words – but I wanted to use specific words that reflect the book’s emphasis.  Please let me know if you have any ideas on how to use these words and create the world map…..

    How do you do the giraffe where you have the words but the giraffe is in the center with no words in it?

  15. Pamely says:

    Does anyone want to make a simple shape for me?

    I am trying to use this to make student gifts for a class. I would like a square – but with a “cutout” in the bottom right or bottom center for a photo. I want to print the cloud and use it as a mat for a picture.
