Title pretty much says it all. Basic instructable to help make funnies. First Instructable i've ever made (woo). Hope you enjoy.

If you dont know what a deomtivational poster is, its like a motivational poster (the kitten hanging on a branch and it says 'hang in there') but opposite. i'm not really a good explanationer, but just google or wiki it, they should have good explanations.

These posters consist of a headline a caption below the headline and a picture above the headline. If you surf the net pretty much anywhere, there are demotivational posters. For Example


they will win

Step 1: Getting Started

What you'll need
- Paint
- A sense of humour
- And if you find this without the use of a computer, you'll need a computer.
- you'll need to find a picture and make a funny for it, or vice versa.

Step 2: Searching

So what i do, is i think up the text first, although you may choose to just google image search a random topic and pretty much wing it. You'll need to know your idea well, if it doesnt sound funny at the end, get a sibling or parent or friend or just somebody to give a second third or fourth opinion.

Fisrtly save your picture.
Open your picture in paint and make quite an area surrounding it (leave a larger amount of space towards the bottom). Get the bucket and fill black.

Step 3: Title-ing Your Poster

Now go to the text box tool and make sure it is on the option woth the clear box. Make the text colour white, a decent size, capitals (thats just the wway i do it, you may not want it, the choice is yours.) , underlined (your choice) and i aslo suggest having it in bold.

Step 4: Sub-heading

N,NW 23 knots, Agean Sea, Greece. (sub heading, get it?) Such a bad joke.

Pretty much same as 3rd step but smaller font, no caps, no bold, and it should be a breif sentence.
this is usually the part that makes it funny and i should hope you do.

Step 5: Final Touches

The posters pretty much have to have a border around them. Get the square tool and make it just the border. Make it white and just refer to the picture.

Step 6: Done!

Now you're done! just save and if you choose, put it up on myspace, facebook and so on and so on.
