I’ve been asked over 20 times how to create the straight outta photos, here it is.
A step by step guide.
The “Straight Outta” photos show no signs of slowing down on social media. As reported by the Inquisitr, the “Straight Outta” meme generator, found on StraightOuttaSomewhere.com, initially displayed 20,000 to 30,000 Instagram usages. By Saturday, that number of “Straight Outta” Instagram photos had swelled to 100,000 or more — and that’s not counting the ones uploaded to Facebook and Twitter. By Sunday, August 9, the number of “Straight Outta” Instagram photos had grown to more than 117,000 on the social networking site. Even Ronda Rousey got trolled via the “Straight Outta” meme, reports For the Win – USA Today.
Exploring the comments section of many of those “Straight Outta” photos proves that tutorials are being highly requested. Many folks are leaving comments asking the “Straight Outta” photo creator how they created their “Straight Outta” photo. They are asking if the person used a “Straight Outta” app. However, a search for “Straight Outta” on the iTunes App Store may bring up the “Straight Outta Compton” suggestion, but it also reports no results for “Straight Outta” in the app store.
In order to create the memes, users visit straightouttasomewhere.com and wait until the images of Dr. Dre and others pass by.
After the short montage of “Straight Outta Compton” photos pass by, the “Straight Outta” meme generator appears, prompting those users who’d like to create their own photos with a blinking red cursor.
When users begin typing their own “Straight Outta” message, they may learn than they can enter a maximum of 15 characters (including spaces) in the empty box, which adjusts the text, kerning, and spacing accordingly.
Next, users can click the “add photo” button to select a photo from their saved files in order to upload that photo to the background of their “Straight Outta” creations. It will appear as black and white, and options to adjust the image, its contrast, and the logo color appear.
Users of the “Straight Outta” meme creator can slide the slider to the left and right to adjust the image’s zoom.
Clicking on “contrast” and sliding the slider changes the photo’s contrast from black and white to grayscale, or various other shades of gray, black, and white, based on the photo.
Selecting the “logo color” gives the option to toggle the “Straight Outta” logo from white to black and vice versa.
Finally, the option to share via Facebook and Twitter only appears on the “Straight Outta” meme generator, or the option to download or start over. Downloading provides a JPEG photo to the user.
“Straight Outta” users who want to share their photos to Instagram have to take a screenshot or email themselves the photo and check their email via their mobile devices and save it, and then upload it to Instagram.
