How to make your favorite quote into a picture file

November 2, 2011 - Author: Ciera - 11 Comments
My Favorite Quote

With the success of Pinterest, along with plenty of ideas for home murals and framed quotes, a handy trick to know is how to take a quote typed up in a word document and turn it into a jpg or png file. When you know this trick you can:

*Post a picture of your quote and include it in a blog post

*Upload your picture to a picture printing website to print your quote on photo paper for wall art for your home

*Upload it to your pictures on facebook or other social networking site

and anything else you can think of to do with a picture file!

*UPDATE: Since writing this post, I’ve found an easier way to do it using Microsoft Powerpoint. You can see the tutorial HERE.

There may be better ways to do this, but this is the easiest way I’ve found:

Step ONE:  Open a word document in Microsoft Word.

 

 

Step TWO: On the “Insert” Tab, and click on “Word Art”

Step THREE: Using the Word Art Tools, create your quote in the style that you want.

Step FOUR: Right-click the WordArt you’ve created and select “copy”.

Step FIVE: Open a “PAINT” file- (virtually every PC has “Paint”. If you can’t find it, do a search for “Paint” and it should open the application)

 

Step SIX: In your Paint document, paste your quote by hitting “Ctrl+V”.

 

 

Step SEVEN: While your quote is still selected (it has the dotted line surrounding it) Click “Crop” in the Paint Tools.

Step EIGHT: “Save” your paint file.

 

Remember where you’ve saved it so you can upload it when you need to. Happy Pinning!

  3. There is a much easier (and free) way to make a picture out of quote. Go to http://www.quozio.com and type your quote and submit. You then have the option to change the design, Pin to Pinterest, or share on Facebook.

    Wayyyyy to much work.

  8. Thank you for this! I was struggling before I found your post. Now, I’ve had a blast all afternoon putting my quotes on Pinterest!

  9. Does it matter what format you save your picture as? Would you need to save it as a jpeg to upload it to a website like pinterest?

      The automatic setting when you save should be jpeg, but you can select your type of file when you select the SAVE option on paint.
