    DID YOU KNOW

    Did you know that a study claims that content with a compelling image can get 94% more views than a content with a boring image? According to Ashley Faulkes on his article, “How To Add Text To Your Images Like A Pro”, adding text to an image can actually make a difference. This is because a text can add an extra pizzazz that the photo was once lacking before. He also explains that a text can help catch the attention of the viewers. Meanwhile, many people are adding texts to photos such as those who are part of the Digital Marketing industry. Studies show that by doing this, it helps marketers to get people engaged in a certain advertisement or topic. In addition, since many people are also interested in this idea, many online articles and video tutorials on the web about how to add texts to a photo are also increasing rapidly. But since the innovation of digital technology, one can simply do this with the use of a smartphone and applications as tools for Android and iOS users. These apps are designed to help them produce exceptional photos with texts. Some of these apps are BeFunky and Fotor Photo Editor.

I wanted to look at PicsArt Photo Studio, as it was recommended by a friend, but it seems to be an Android App, and I just wanted something lightweight for my computer. I'm sure it does the job just fine, but I have an iPhone."
