Create moving text graphics online for free. (urgent 3d text with lightning image by Sherri Camp from

Moving text graphics can be used to display information in a news ticker format or can be used as a hyperlink for navigating between the pages of your blogs and personal websites. You can also use moving text graphics as an avatar or signature for forums and social networking websites. And with the help of some free online utilities, virtually anyone can generate custom moving text for use in just about any online format.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Generate moving text using Animation Online's web-based utility (see Resources). The utility on Animation Online's website provides seven different Flash banners for you to use. Select a template, fill out the text box, select a background colour and then hit the utility's "Save" option. However, the site does require a membership to fully use the utility. But Animation Online memberships are free.

  2. 2

    Create moving text for free online, using Marquee Text Live (see Resources). The utility features an editable, text marque. You can specify the marque text's font, size, scroll direction and speed. You can save the marquee as a GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) file, or you can copy the embed code and embed the moving text into a web page.

  3. 3

    Create moving text online using HTML Basix's Marquee Code Generator (see Resources). The free utility lets you generate HTML code for moving text, which you can embed directly into your website. You can edit everything from the text's scroll speed to its alignment. You can even adjust the text's behaviour with the utility's "bounce," "slide" and "scroll" options.
