How to Add Custom Text to Images with Kapwing
In the Studio, select the Text tool in the top toolbar and write what you want your text box to say. Using the editing options on the right, you can customize your text’s font, color, outline, style, position, size, and even animation style and drop shadow effect. Add as many text boxes as you want to your canvas and edit them all however you want.
With custom text boxes for photos, you can add vivid descriptions, eye-popping titles, stylish signatures, and even auto-generated subtitles for background audio. Export your image to download it or share it on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter in just a few seconds.
Using the transformer (purple dots around the text), you can resize the text dynamically or drag and drop it to the position you want on top of the video. You can also use the fifth transformer to slightly rotate the text to the perfect angle. Kapwing supports many other text transformations as well, including text opacity and line height - play around for the perfect look and feel for your video.
