What is the Meme Generator?
It's a free online image maker that lets you add custom resizable text, images, and much more to templates.
People often use the generator to customize established memes,
such as those found in Imgflip's collection of Meme Templates.
However, you can also upload your own templates or start from scratch with empty templates.
How to make a meme
Choose a template. You can use one of the popular templates, search through more than 1 million
user-uploaded templates using the search input, or hit "Upload new template" to upload your own template
from your device or from a url. For designing from scratch, try searching "empty" or "blank" templates.
Add customizations. Add text, images, stickers, drawings, and spacing using the buttons beside
your meme canvas.
Create and share. Hit "Generate Meme" and then choose how to share and save your meme. You can
share to social apps or through your phone, or share a link, or download to your device. You can also
share with one of Imgflip's many meme communities.
How can I customize my meme?
You can move and resize the text boxes by dragging them around. If you're on a mobile device,
you may have to first check "enable drag/drop" in the More Options section. You can add as many
additional text boxes as you want with the Add Text button.
You can customize the font color and outline color next to where you type your text.
You can further customize the font for each text box using the gear icon next to the text input.
Imgflip supports all fonts installed on your device including the default Windows, Mac, and web fonts,
including bold and italic. Over 1,300 free fonts are also supported for all devices. Any other font
you want can be used if you first install it on your device and then type in the font name on Imgflip.
You can insert popular or custom stickers and other images including scumbag hats, deal-with-it
sunglasses, speech bubbles, and more. Opacity and resizing are supported, and you can copy/paste images
using CMD/CTRL + C/V for quick creation.
You can rotate, flip, and crop any templates you upload.
You can draw, outline, or scribble on your meme using the panel just above the meme preview image.
You can create "meme chains" of multiple images stacked vertically by adding new images with the
"below current image" setting.
You can add special image effects like posterize, jpeg artifacts, blur, sharpen, and color filters
like grayscale, sepia, invert, and brightness.
You can remove our subtle imgflip.com watermark (as well as remove ads and supercharge your image
creation abilities) using Imgflip Pro
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.
Can I make animated or video memes?
Yes! Animated meme templates will show up when you search in the Meme Generator above (try "party parrot").
If you don't find the meme you want, browse all the GIF Templates or upload
and save your own animated template using the GIF Maker.
