The first step in learning how to make memes is knowing what they are.
In today's society and in relation to this site, we focus on funny memes that usually start with a funny photo with a clever caption on it that is meant to be shared and spread while the joke gets copied with different variations and usually spreads quickly on social networks like reddit, facebook, twitter and many other platforms.
Meme's can also come in the form of funny videos or gifs that quickly gain a lot of views and shares causing them to go viral online.
MAKING YOUR MEME
To use our meme generator is very easy, we made it simple because.. why make it complicated? It's supposed to be a fun and light hearted experience. The first step is to choose what meme you want to make, we have hundreds of templates available on our site that you can browse and choose from, they all convey a different emotion or kind of joke so you can view the example's and choose according to what you want to say. If none of the existing templates are suitable or if you want to make your own new meme just go to our upload page and choose a photo from your computer or phone. Yes, our meme maker works on mobile!
Once you have a photo picked you'll be taken to the create page that has a lot of options but all you really need to do is type your joke. Most memes have a top caption and a bottom caption. Once you've typed them out simply publish your meme if you want to keep it simple and then its ready to share!
Want to get more creative? You can add more text boxes if you need to say more. You can also drag the text boxes around to place them exactly where you want. Other text formatting options include:
- changing color of the font
- changing color of the stroke
- turning the stroke on or off and adjusting thickness
- changing the actual font
- changing text alignment
We also have other creative options such as adding images on top of your meme, kind of like stickers, we have some for you to choose from including the popular rage faces and other funny stuff or you can even upload your own! You can resize and move them around or delete them if you change your mind.
There is also an option to draw on your meme if you need to highlight an important area of the photo or do some troll editing of your own.
We have gotten rid of watermarks for now, yay! We hope you will give us a shout out when people ask how you made your meme but it’s up to you.
When you upload a photo to our site, that meme automatically goes into private mode. You can still view the meme on our site but it doesn't get added to our public gallery and can only be shared by someone who knows the link to it.
We strongly discourage any hateful or any ill willed memes being made on our site, we made this tool to spread fun and laughter not promote bullying or harassment of any kind. If you have seen a meme on our site that is offensive to you or anyone else we strongly encourage you to report it to us, we will most definitely delete it as soon as possible. We get a lot of requests so please understand if there is a delay with the deletion. Offensive material goes against our core beliefs and is not tolerated.
Also, before you make a meme targeted at a friend, coworker, family or anyone that is meant to be a joke, please try and imagine their reaction to it. Is it too personal? Too sensitive? Could it get them in trouble at work or school? We get many emails from upset people because of a meme that was meant to be a joke but went too far. Just something to consider!
SHARING YOUR MEME
Sharing your meme is the most important part of making a meme, what’s the point if no one can see you humorous glory? The biggest community for sharing funny memes has got to be reddit with facebook starting to take over, at least on our end. Meme Maker made a lot of memes for reddit when we were featured on the advice animals for years, why we were taken off who knows but there are still many loyal reddit fans who use our site on a daily basis and we’re thankful to Advice Animals for helping our site get known to redditors!
