Typography matters when it comes to the readability of your text. Spacing is also an important aspect of text structure people tend to overlook. With PicsArt’s Text Editor you can easily write on images and adjust your leading, kerning, and tracking for more precision in layout.

Shadows, Borders, Contours, Colors

You have full creative control over your words. Add shadows to your letters for dramatic effect. Borders and contouring will make your texts stand out. Make sure to choose unique colors for your texts. Since colors convey certain emotions, choose them wisely. You can interweave your sentences in front of, behind, and around objects. There are so many ways you can play around with our free online Text Editor. For example, we really like the idea of your favorite quote or words creating an outline of your selfie or portrait. You can even layer your preferred words on top of yourself for something artsy. There are no mistakes or rules when it comes to adding texts on photos. When you have something to say, write on your pictures and add texts on your photos to take your favorite images from silent to stand-out.

Don’t Forget to Edit Your Photos

Set and edit backgrounds for your texts with PicsArt’s Photo Editor. We provide all the necessary tools for you to edit your images like a pro. Choose from a range of unique filters and creative stickers to add to your images. If you want to be more minimalistic, simply play around with the colors and tones of your pictures. Nothing is off-limits. As soon as you’re done editing your image, start adding text to your photos. There are many design techniques you can use to make your text pop. You can blur or darken your image so the letters stand out more. Visually, this creates a nice contrast and your text will be right under the spotlight. Adjust the size of your text. Larger text grabs more attention compared to smaller text. This way, you can emphasize the important parts of your content. If you have an empty space in your image, use that area to place your text. This will make it more visible and readable to your audience.
