Every website owner wants to create an aesthetically pleasing experience for their visitors. Images play a big part in attracting people to your content and adding compelling or valuable text to your pictures can help them stand out. A website that features large, beautiful images with a few short words or phrases that capture what you do and who you are, has a far better chance of encouraging visitors to stick (and click) around.
The good news is, you don’t need to be a graphic designer to add text to images. Here are some quick tips to help you place text on your website images like a pro.

Wix Image Editor
Best (and easiest) of all, you can edit images straight from the Wix editor. Start by adding the image to your site. Then click on image settings and edit at will! You can crop the image, change its look and feel and add the text of your choice.
You can also create a similar effect by adding a text box to your site. Place the text box over the image and make sure the text is in front of the image. It’s that easy!
