Adding Text to Images

grapes Haiku

I’ve been playing this morning.

For quite awhile, I’ve been trying to figure out how to add text to my images, as I’ve seen so many other talented photographers and writers do. Using my computer programs has given me a total of zero successful moments.

But thanks to Sue Vincent and her post “Looking good -10 simple tips for adding images,” I have now found an online program that helps me add text to my images. Thank you, Sue!

I chose an image I took in the Napa Valley. Of course, these grapes could have been growing in my own Yakima Valley, as our vineyards are abundantly heavy with weighty vines each fall. But the Napa picture was right on the computer, waiting for some attention.

I used pixlr.com/express/ as my first foray into visual + words experiment. This program is quite simple to use and the options are wide and varied. Best of all? FREE.

Oh, I do believe this is just the beginning of playtime for moi.

I live with my husband and crazy kitty. Much of my time is spent writing, reading, and playing with the grands. You can usually find me sipping tea or coffee, nibbling on dark chocolate, and contemplating what to plant next in the garden. If not those pursuits, then I am probably trying to figure out how to cook and live in an RV, creating cards with rubber stamps, walking, hiking, or out snapping photos with my camera.

  1. Is that not the most beautiful image and text you have ever seen??? Grrrr. Now how to make the image stay in place. It shows up on my page when I add it to the post, and then here after I publish it, nothing. Help!

  2. This shall just be a running commentary by me. First, I do wish you could see my grapes and read the Haiku. Secondly, it is NOT 4:31 pm here. Where does this time come from anyway? Pacific time, 8:33 am.

  3. Maybe someone else can see the image? Let me know. Weird.
