If anyone wants to know how I saved my word cloud from Wordle, here’s how I did it (you might find a better way): Choose the Print option and through that menu save it as a PDF, then open the PDF and save it as a JPEG. You can probably take a screenshot of the word cloud, too – I just wanted the best resolution possible so that it could be blown up onscreen for the activity.
This might be completely superfluous, but I just wanted to share in case anyone was initially flummoxed – please feel free to comment if you have a better way!
*UPDATE (in response to Paul’s comment):
Paul, I did use my work computer initially, which is a Microsoft one. However, when I went to Wordle.net just now, I was able to download the Java plug-in, restart Firefox, generate a wordcloud, and when I clicked “Print,” (a few times, because I had to keep “Allow”-ing the applet to connect with my printer [which isn't actually even hooked up to my laptop currently]), I was able to get a Print dialogue screen to appear:
So I could manually choose “Save as PDF”, which then led to this screen, where I was able to save my word cloud into PDF format:
I don’t know if it’s because I used Firefox or my OS is different (I’m running 10.7.5), but after downloading Java, I was able to obtain a PDF. However, now I need to double-check my print queue (for my non-existent printer), because this has happened before. Good luck! :/
