Adding Text to Images to Create Something Special

There are many reasons why you might want to add your own text to clipart and photos. Some of the most popular are wedding or birthday invitations, new baby notifications and even social media posts and memes. Fortunately there are many different ways to create the perfect image!

If you have image editing software such as Adobe Photoshop, CorelDRAW or GIMP adding text is very straightforward. Not only can you easily add the words themselves but changing the colors and styles is also quick and easy:

These are not your only program options of course! You can find a great selection of links to both free and commercial Image Editing Software programs on our Pinterest page.

One of the benefits of using such software is that by downloading and installing fonts from our websites you will have many more styles to choose from when creating your masterpiece! Any fonts you install will also become available for you to use in your Microsoft Office or Apple desktop publishing programs.

If you don't really want to install new software on your computer then there are also lots of Online Image Editors that are worth a try. While some are extremely complex and powerful tools others are perfect for those with less experience of editing images.

If you are just looking for some simple custom text then we highly recommend giving the Cool Text Graphics Generator a try. The site currently has 1,958 fonts to play with and you can easily change the colors and font sizes to create something unique!

Please let us know if you know of any awesome resources that we have missed so that we can add them to our Pinterest boards.
Happy creating!
