Add text on top of a photo

Excel for Microsoft 365 Word for Microsoft 365 PowerPoint for Microsoft 365 Excel 2021 Word 2021 PowerPoint 2021 Excel 2019 Word 2019 PowerPoint 2019 Excel 2016 Word 2016 PowerPoint 2016 Excel 2013 Word 2013 PowerPoint 2013 Excel 2010 Word 2010 PowerPoint 2010 Excel 2007 Word 2007 PowerPoint 2007 More… Less

In Microsoft Office, you use either WordArt or a text box to add text on top of a photo. You can move the WordArt or text box over your photo and then, depending on which Microsoft Office program you’re using, rotate the text to best fit your photo.

The best method to use depends on what you’re trying to achieve and which Microsoft Office program you are using. Do you want the text to have a very stylized look? Are you trying to achieve an affect similar to what you might see on a postcard? Is the text short in length? If so, then WordArt might be your best option.

The other option to add text on top of a photo is to draw a text box, type the text you want in the text box, and then make the background and outline of the text box transparent. You can format the text in the text box, just as you format text anywhere in Office. This option is especially useful when you want to add more than just a word or two to your photo.
