Top 5 Sites You Can Use To Create Wanted Poster Madness

Wanted posters are a great affect for pictures that you are looking to post on the internet. Your friends and family will get a kick out of your picture and wonder what they can do to create wanted poster themselves.

They are meant to replicate the old western posters that police would use to track down criminals.  Their were not camera’s, helicopters, or cell phones to assist the police in finding wanted criminals in the wild west.  The sheriff would posted these wanted posters and hope that the bounty would be enough to get someone to talk!

Depending on what website you use, the process can be very simple or completely customizable. It really depend on how much effort your want to put into the project. For our examples, we will be using a picture of my Golden Retriever, “Butch”

Simply upload the picture, fill out the text boxes, and click “make wanted poster”. The website will quickly generate the picture you requested and post it for you to save. A drawback to this option is that they place a watermark of their own logo on the top of your generate image.

All they want is the picture you are trying to use and they will do the rest. Upload the picture and click “start upload” to create the wanted poster.

Once you have generated the picture, you are sent to a screen that allows you to customize your poster in several different ways. It also allows your to easily download the picture to your computer or share it on your social media sites with a single click. Here are some of the options you have to customize:

  • The caption displayed on the top row of the image.
  • The bottom text that is under the image.
  • Add text to wherever you would like.
  • Resize, crop, or rotate the image as needed.

On top of all these options, you can click “add effect” on the top left-hand corner and add all sorts of cool effects to your picture. In your example, we added the “swirl effect” and though that it came out pretty cool. You can be the judge of that, but this is definitely the most customizable tool available to create wanted poster.

Image Chef

We like that this website allows you to cycle through a few other picture options with your already uploaded picture as well. We do not like that they force you to include their watermark unless you upgrade to a pro subscription.

  • Click “Change Photo” and upload your own photo. You can upload the picture from your local computer, from a web address, or even straight from Facebook.

We like how easy this tool is to use all the way through. They set it up so that there is not point where you should be questioning what you need to do next. If reminds us a lot of the original Oregon Trail video games from the 90’s. One thing that we don’t like is that the only option you have at the end is to print the picture that you created. You cannot save it locally unless you have a print to file application.
