Tagul is an online word cloud generator that enables you to create amazing and unique word cloud art with ease. Professional quality results can be achieved in no time at all, even for users with no prior knowledge of graphic design.
To print a word cloud click on “Print” button placed underneath your word cloud image.
If you are not satisfied with the result you can try another more robust method: go to “Download and Share” section and download your world cloud as PNG image. Then print it as any other image or picture using your image viewing / printing software.
You need to create Tagul cloud with 4/6 = 0.67 aspect ratio.
To achieve that do the following:
Download your cloud in PNG format (in Download and Share section) and then print it as any other image or picture. Your printing software should allow you to size and position an image to fit paper size. If it doesn't we suggest you to try GIMP image editor.
Check “Keep as is” box for “Words amount” in Layout section.
Your browser may have saved the cloud to Downloads folder without notifying you. Please have a look there. This behavior can be changed in your browser settings.
In any image editing software like MS Paint or Adobe Photoshop write numbers (or a word) in black on white background. Then save that image as PNG or JPEG file and use it as your custom shape.

By default “Maximize” option is used for “Words size” parameter in “Layout” section. It means that words will be maximized to fit the available space when placed. Change it to “use size column from words table” to tell Tagul to use “Size” value from “Words” section when placing words.
Unfortunately (due to Tagul algorithm's nature) it is not possible to make all words *exactly* the same size. Tagul algorithm tries to fill the selected shape at the first place in the meantime sacrificing the accuracy of words sizes. The best you can do is to select “use size column from words table” in “Layout” section and make all the sizes equal to 1 in “Words” table. This will tell Tagul to try keeping all the words the same size as much as possible.
Actually there are 2 modes that controls how the "Size" column is used during the visualization process. The modes are set in the "Layout" section for the "Words size" parameter:
1) "Maximize" mode means that the "Size" column will determine the words placing sequence. Words will be paced from the biggest size to the smallest, but will occupy the maximum available space at the moment of placing.
2) "Use size column from words table" mode means the words will be still placed from the biggest size to the smallest, but a word's size will be calculated based on the "Size" value and the available space at the moment of placing. It means that Tagul will try to maintain the accurate sizes for words (as they are in the Words table), but if at some point of time there will be no enough room for a word with a specific size, Tagul will decrease the word size to fit it into the available space.
In “Words” section click on “URL options” button. Then change “Links pattern” to point to your site and click “Apply links pattern” button. Then visualize and save your cloud.
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 columns except the first one are optional, you can leave them empty):
Yes you can. Create an excel spreadsheet with your words data (see the screenshot below).
Then copy it (without header) and import using “Import text” button in Words section.
You can't download your word cloud with the animation. Animation is done in your browser only and therefore you can only share your cloud's link (in Download and Share section). Anyone who opens it will be able to see your cloud with the animation.
