How To Add Text To Photo Collages

By Whitney DePaoli | Collage Maker Tutorials

Sometimes a photo collage needs a little something more than photos. Adding text to collages can help express the theme or provide context for what you’re creating. Perhaps you want to add a title to your Pinterest Pin collage, captions for your moodboard, or simply write out a quote or special note on a collage you’re creating. For times like these, BeFunky’s Collage Maker has everything you need to add text and customize everything about it, from the font to the color, letter spacing, and more!

Our Text Editor has its own special tab in the Collage Maker, and will help you add text to photo collages in seconds. With hundreds of free fonts available (and even the ability to add your own fonts!) and plenty of customization options, you’ll be able to style your text however you’re imagining it. We’ll show you how!

How To Add Text To Photo Collages

When you’re ready to get started, head to BeFunky’s Collage Maker and click on the Image Manager tab on the left. Once you’re there, upload all of the photos you’d like to use in your collage.

Next, click on the Layouts tab and choose your favorite layout. There are plenty of layout options for you to choose from in the Grid, Big Photo Wrap, Facebook Cover, and Pinterest categories. If you’d rather have our Collage Wizard select the perfect layout from your selected images, click the Collage Wizard button at the top of the screen. It will automatically generate all of the high-resolution layout possibilities using your images! In other words, it will do all the hard work for you. All you have to do is choose your favorite layout.

Once your collage cells are filled with beautiful photos and you’re happy with the layout, click the Text tab (the A icon) in the menu on the left. After you select the Add Text button, a textbox will appear for you to type whatever you’d like!

When you’re finished typing out what you’d like to say, use the Text Properties toolbar to change the font, letter spacing, color, and so much more. Feel free to test out different looks and see what works best for your collage.

With your text looking amazing, you can continue editing your photo collage or click the Save button at the top of the Collage Maker to save your work. You’ll have several options for saving to your Computer, BeFunky account, Dropbox and more! You can also share your photo collage straight to social media channels like Facebook and Pinterest if that’s more your style. And if you’d like to save your collage in editable format, click the Save As Project button to store an editable version. That way you can always pick right back up where you left off at a later date.
