New project: Auto poster

Motivational posters pop up everywhere, either the serious ones, but really mostly at least on the internet the demotivational ones. People on all sorts of forums seem to have fun creating themselves. It's not hard - you find a powerpoint template, find an image, pick some colors, type in your funny text, create a screenshot and upload the result. Still quite a bit of work. Especially since you'll usually end up using image search to get the picture and if you want to do it right, base the color scheme on the image you use. Plus sharing by image is not as handy as sharing by url.

Auto poster does the entire thing online. You type a search string for your image, a word for the poster and your tagline and the program does the rest (i.e. fetch the image, calculate the color and project the entire thing in badly css'd html). Give it a go.
