What is the Meme Generator?

It's a free online image maker that allows you to add custom resizable text to images. It operates in HTML5 canvas, so your images are created instantly on your own device. Most commonly, people use the generator to add text captions to established memes, so technically it's more of a meme "captioner" than a meme maker. However, you can also upload your own images as templates.

How can I customize my meme?

Can I use the generator for more than just memes?

Yes! The Meme Generator is a flexible tool for many purposes. By uploading custom images and using all the customizations, you can design many creative works including posters, banners, advertisements, and other custom graphics.

Why is there an "imgflip.com" watermark on my memes?

The Imgflip watermark helps other people find where the meme was created, so they can make memes too! However, if you'd really like to, you can remove our watermark from all images you create, as well as remove ads and supercharge your image creation abilities, using Imgflip Pro or Imgflip Pro Basic.

Do you have a wacky AI that can write memes for me?

Q: Y U NO give us this for free instead?!?

A: We don't like bothering people with ads, and we want you to be able to support Imgflip in a way that gives you the best experience. Before we introduced this, there was no way to remove the watermark from memes without paying for the full Imgflip Pro, which is more expensive.
