Tag Clouds WordPress Featured Blog
January 23, 2007
With the unfolding of Web 2.0 technologies, software developers such as authors/technicians are constantly improving their products. WordPress for bloggers, has a Featured Blogs element which uses the user’s tag clouds with an algorithm to generate clusters of tags. This is one of the clusters for my entries categorized under tag clouds itself.
Using the liquify tool in Adobe Photoshop I digitally manipulated text tags chosen by WordPress, maintaining WordPress generated proportions by using larger or bold fonts to visually demarcate tags that were used more often in this tag cloud.
I wanted the shapes of the words to take flight, to mimic the movement of the clouds.
I took this photo when I was on a First Air flight from Ottawa to Iqaluit, Nunavut in 2003. I think I used to ask for Row 21, a window seat so I could take aerial photos.
