Learn how to add words to pictures with Movavi Photo Editor. All you need to do is download Photo Editor for Windows or Mac, install the software, and follow the instructions below.

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 words to a picture, open the Text panel and click the blue Add Text button. Now type whatever you want inside the broken white line frame. 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. Open the Text subtab and change the font size, color, and adjust the justification and degree of transparency. You can also outline letters and choose the color and weight of the outline. Open the Background subtab and adjust the text background settings: opacity, frame width, color, and more.

Click Add Decorations next to the Add Text button. In the window that will open, you can add various stickers to adorn your text.

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!
