Picture of How to make Demotivational Posters
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

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.
