Make your text stand out

There are a couple of techniques to make text stand out in photos: For example, you can enlarge the font size, curve the text or apply a vibrant, contrasting color to your text. Another creative idea is to make your pictures less sharp by adding a light blur or making them slightly see-through. After uploading your image, you can apply the Template “Background Blur” that you can find under Photo Editing Classics Template.

How can adding text to your photo create an impact?

Enhanced storytelling 📖

Adding text to a photo enables you to include captions, quotes, or descriptions to your images, providing extra context and enriching the storytelling aspect.

It aids in conveying emotions, messages, or narratives that may not be fully expressed through the image itself.

You can add names, dates, or personalized messages to create meaningful and memorable visuals.

    Suitable photos for my website

    I love being able to remove backgrounds from my pictures. I sell online, and when I take pictures, it's not always in a clean, uncluttered environment. I like how Photoroom gets rid of all of that and allows me to change the background to something more pleasing to the eye and suitable to place on my website.
