Why add text to images?

While a picture paints a thousand words, a picture with added text paints a thousand and one. Adding text to your images helps convey or emphasize a particular message or piece of information.

A good quality photo or image is great, but sometimes you need to add a text layer to give a fuller picture. What can make them even more appealing and eye-catching is using custom colors and to change the typography color to something that sticks out. This is one of the more useful photo effects - especially when it comes to social media posts.
