Adding text to pictures is commonly done by using the editing or adding text options in photo editing programs, font editors and mobile applications. Users typically upload photos from their computer or mobile device or may be taken directly within the app.
Applications such as Phonto let users choose from a large selection of different fonts, colors and graphics to add text to their photos. Programs commonly offer different ways to display text, such as adding text bars through the middle of pictures or speech bubbles near someone's head resembling comic book speech. Many programs also allow users to connect and upload photos directly from social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter.
