Thread Necro.
Because I can.

For anybody using Paint.Net in here, I found this handy little plugin pack
which contains, among other arcane things,
an easy-to-use Speech Balloon thingie!

Remember to keep your layer for the speech bubble on normal properties,
not multiply!

I know many people here have a version of photoshop, so I found this.

It's results are almost as good as what Illustrator can do.

Hi there,

Are there any online tools for creating word bubbles?

(Asking here since this thread is still on the front page)

What do you mean by 'online tools'?  What are you looking for?  Tutorial, program, or template?

Hi William,

I'm looking for online software/programs that can help me make word bubbles.

Well, if you look back in the thread there are tutorials for making them in GIMP which is a free program you can download. There's also http://www.getpaint.net/ (also free) and tdkgunghoul posted about a plug-in you can use to make them.

Sorry but that's not what I'm looking for.

I can use Photoshop to do it but was hoping for something simpler.

I haven't heard of anything like that. Pretty much the 100% most simple and lazy way to do word bubbles is by doing them in Manga Studio, which will format the text and give you the tail. Anything online probably won't give you the best results or customization since you'll be relying on built in fonts to do it.

You can find and install a free plugin for Photoshop to make speech bubbles.
Just look up "photoshop plugin for speech bubble" on google, see what you can get. I should find one too there, but I haven't, so if you DO find one, do post.

also, this link might help: http://www.2000shareware.com/downloads/photoshop/speech/bubble/plugin/

Plugins for photoshop is like a phone app for the phone. Quick to install, and a complete new application to the program.
