How to add text to photo or video
Open a photo or video in the PicMonkey editor.
Click Text > Add text to photo or video and choose a font.
Type in the box that appears.
Customize font size, color, text effects, and more.
Add text effects
Whether you want a drop shadow or an inner shadow, PicMonkey has a slider-based tool that handles it all. So when you want to add text to photos or videos, you'll have tons of options to make your text look the best it can be.
Use the curved text tool to make logos or watermarks
Curve your text with two clicks in PicMonkey. It’s as easy (and as circular) as pie. So next time you add text to a photo, give it some curve and claim your pic with a watermark.
Erase text tool
When you add text to photos, you can get a layered look with the Eraser tool that’s built into our Text tool. It’s really handy if you want to quickly make text look like it’s behind something.
