We needed images to go along with our presentation and we didn't want to spend too much time on it. Movavi Photo Editor was just what the doctor ordered."

      "Movavi Photo Editor is easy to use and does what it says it can do. I wish it did allow one to use gridlines to better align text and inserted images and at first I thought it was because it wasn't a full featured version. Unfortunately, it's a "Free Download" and just a trial version that allows you to only save 10 images with a huge watermark on the bottom right. It requires you to purchase an activation key for ~ $40 USD. That's rather outrageous for the limited capabilities it offers. There are some photo editors that are much more capable for the same price."

    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.
