Free Cool and Glow Text

Sorry Picture Not Found

There are a couple of websites around that allow people to make very nice short text titles. These titles can then be used in PowerPoint, Publisher, Photoshop, Word, or any other application. They can also be downloaded and saved as image files.

The first of these websites is "Glow Text" at :

The site is very simple to use, and it is just a matter of typing your text in, setting the font size and amount of glow, and then choosing from one of the many styles, such as these:

Sorry Picture Not Found

And we then get our text generated for us on the Glow Text web page like this:

Sorry Picture Not Found

We can then right click on the text image and either save it to disk, or Copy it to the paste buffer. We can then go into PowerPoint and paste the text image onto a slide to use for a heading.

When we combine our text
with a background from Google Images, we can make a unique PowerPoint slide design like this one:

Sorry Picture Not Found

PowerPoint 2007 does have its own Glow effects that can be added to text, but it doesn't hurt to have some extra text making tools at our disposal.

Another free text making site is "Cool Text" at:

Cool Text has available the following set of text styles:

Sorry Picture Not Found

It is basically the same to use online as Glow Text. The output text image can be copied into other applications such as PowerPoint etc.

Here is some text that was made using the Cool Text online site:

So there we have it: Glow Text and Cool Text for all your fancy titling needs.
