Create Your Librarian Avatar!

This week I also looked at Avatar Digital Tools.  I tried the 3 tools listed below:

This is an image of the “real” me.


Pick a Face Review

  • You have to create an account.
  • Sleek interface and easy to use.
  • Limited Hair choices.  Didn’t reflect my look at all.  Found some of the templates were limited in diversity.

Pick a Face Results:

Yikes!  That can’t possibly look like me?!


Doppel Me Review:

  • You have to create an account.
  • Interface is unattractive; I felt like I was having a 90s software flashback.
  • Much more diverse in hair, skin color, and facial feature templates.

Doppel Me results:

Doppel Avatars  A little closer to the “real” me.  I am satisfied.


Bitstrips App (on Facebook) Review:

  • Accessible through Facebook, so you need to have an account.
  • You can create your Bitstrip avatar on the web version or the mobile version.
  • You have to be on the web version to download images.  Note:  You can probably do it on your mobile device but it definitely involves more steps.
  • Very diverse, modern templates.  When you are working in the app, you can see your FB friends.   If they’ve created a Bitstrips avatar and you can use their creations to design captioned images.  Great for creating images with colleagues! 🙂

BitStrips App results:
