Launch the Program and Add Your Photo

To start putting captions on a picture, launch the program you've downloaded. Click Browse for Images to open the file you're going to work on. Alternatively, you can simply drag and drop the pic into the editing area.

Put a Caption on the Photo

To add captions to a photo, open the Text panel and click the Add Text button. Now type whatever you want in the text entry window. Keep in mind that Movavi Photo Editor allows adding multiple blocks of captions to any individual picture. To do this, just repeat the above steps as many times as necessary. To move a text block, just click and drag it wherever you need to.

Edit the Caption

You can easily edit your caption using the handy toolbar. In the Text subtab, change the font size and color, outline letters or add a frame. Twist the text into different shapes.

To adorn your text, open the Decorations subtab and click Add Decorations. To change the color of your sticker, use the Palette or Spectrum.

If you want to delete the caption blocks you’ve added and start over, just click Remove All.

Save the Final Image

To save the captioned picture, click the Save button in the lower right corner and choose the destination folder, file name, and format. You can save your picture in PNG, JPEG, TIFF, BMP, or any other popular image format.

And there you have it – all you need to know about successfully placing captions on images!
