Add Text to Images

A fast and simple way to enrich your photos with words and text clips

A picture can say 1000 words, but text layers can say a few precise words to get the message across. Sometimes, you need text overlays on your photo to explain what’s happening in a photograph, or want to label, caption, or watermark the GIF or video. Personalized words can add to the photo’s meaning, making it more memorable.

With Kapwing’s Add Text tool, it’s simple to put text layers on top of any photo, video, or GIF for free. Kapwing supports many image file types including JPG, PNG, GIF, MP4, and more. Just upload your multimedia or create a collage out of several images. Then, overlay the text layer, type custom text, and style it to your liking. Kapwing’s Add Text tool works on any type of device and computer, including Windows and Mac.

Finally, adding text is as quick as it should be. Put animated and timed text or keep it simple with a static quote, saying, or message. Kapwing’s tools give you power if you want to design word photo art and speed if you just want to complete a quick task. We hope you enjoy this free web app for adding text!
