Frequently Asked Question

We strive to make meme better as user-friendly as possible, but if anything is unclear or you're just curious, we hope you'll find your answers below.

  1. How do I save my meme image?

    You have 2 options to save your image to your computer or mobile device. Use the one you prefer.

    Desktop users

    1. Right-click the image and select "Save Image as".
    2. Use the "Save Image" button in the Meme Generator, which will prompt you to download the image.

    Mobile users1

    1. Press-and-hold the meme image and you will be prompted to save it.2
    2. Use the "Save Image" button in the Meme Generator, which will prompt you to download the image.

    If "Auto Refresh" was turned off for performance reasons, you will need to manually refresh your meme before you save it. To do this, click/press your meme image and it will re-generate.

    1 Some Android users may have difficulty saving images due to browser limitations with generated images. We will provide workarounds whenever possible.

    2 Press-and-hold may not work on all mobile devices, use the image saving technique supported by your device.

  2. Can I use other images?

  3. Why can't I save my memes to your servers?

    We opted to give you full control over the memes you create. You can save the image locally to your computer or device and decide what you want to do with it. Keep your memes and images private, or upload it for the world to see, that's up to you.

  4. Why does the meme generator run slowly while I type?

    By default, the meme editor generates a new image on-the-fly after every letter typed via the "Auto Refresh" feature. For most high-performance devices, this gives a fluid experience, but performance may suffer on slower devices.

    If you find your device is slow while typing, disable "Auto Refresh" and manually update your meme by clicking on it.

  5. How do I change the text size, font, or placement?

    We designed meme better to be as simple as possible for our users. We wanted it to just work, with no need to fuss with text placement, sizing, or font. We hope our testing and fine tuning is delivering on that promise.

    For the choice of font, we prefer the Impact font style. It's bold and attention-grabbing. Since this font isn't available on everyone's devices, we will substitute it for Passion One (particularly on mobile) which carries as similar look.

  6. Why doesn't the meme generator work for me?

    meme better makes use of modern web browser features to bring you the best user experience. Unfortunately, older browsers lack these advanced capabilities. Having the most up-to-date browser available to you would assure the best experience.

    We recommend the latest Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge.

    Some mobile browsers, such as Opera Mini and Amazon Kindle Silk, perform optimizations not compatible with our image manipulation techniques. Please use a different mobile browser to get the most out of our meme generator.
