Improve any image and add text on a JPEG, PNG, or any picture file type. The text can be words, emojis, or WordArt images. Customize the size, font, and color of your text in just a few clicks so it fits your image perfectly. Start by uploading a photo or pasting a link to import your photo into Kapwing’s online video editor.
Upload the photo that you want to add text to or paste a link to your image. You can select from a variety of image formats, including JPG, PNG, GIF, and more.
Use the Text tool to add text to images. Change font size, custom color, and even add effects and animations to your text on your picture.
Hit “Export” and Kapwing will instantly process your photo with the added text. Save and share your new JPG with text by downloading or sharing your new image URL link.
Adding custom text to your images is a great way to label your images, watermark photos, or just generally give more context to your content. With Kapwing, creators can add custom text to any image in just three clicks.
In Kapwing, use the text tool to add a text box and write what you want your text box to say. 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.
Use the transformer (the dots on the text box outline) to resize the text 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. Explore your own creative vision and play around for the perfect look and feel for your video.
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
