Promote Reading With the Free ALA READ Mini Poster Generator!

Have you ever wanted to create the ALA style “READ” posters but did not have the money in your budget to purchase the software?  Or perhaps you have the software, but you want to create the posters on the fly without having to take the time to edit the templates in Photoshop Elements?

ALA is now offering a free READ Mini Poster Generator!  This generator, created by the folks of Big Huge Labs Flickr Toys, allows you to easily upload your own photos and choose one of four templates to create your very own READ poster image.  Once the image is created, you can easily upload the photo to your website, blog, or Flickr account.  What a wonderful way to promote reading!

Many thanks to “The Shifted Librarian” for sharing this wonderful gem with the rest of us!  You will also want to check out how she is using this tool for creating graphics to promote alternative forms of reading and digital literacy.
