Add Text to Photos

If you want to manipulate text in ways that enhance
and support your brand assets and personal projects, we’ve got what you need. Our intuitive tools like drop shadow, curved text, and erasing put us way ahead of
other design platforms. Let’s see what PicMonkey can
do so you can textify!

Text effects :

Whether you want a drop shadow or an inner shadow, or you want to knock the color out of your text, PicMonkey has a slider-based tool that handles it all. You can make drop shadows with our competitors by copying and pasting text, then manually moving the shadow. It looks okay, but your design options are limited and it’s a fair bit of work.

Curved Text :

Curve your text with two clicks in PicMonkey. It’s as easy (and as circular) as pie. Our competitors let you curve text by entering each letter in a separate text box and manually adjusting their positions. This works, but it takes about three minutes less than forever. Hope you have a comfy chair.

Erase text :

Get a layered text look with the Eraser that’s built into our Text tool. It’s really handy if you want to quickly make text look like it’s behind something—type the text and remove just the portion you don’t want to appear, letting the layer beneath show through. Don’t even ask if you can do this with the other guys.
