Whether it’s a social media ad, a special event, or video for your website, get your message across by adding captions, quotes, or your own text on top of your video.
Drag and drop images and videos from your computer into your project or choose from our library of Getty Images stock. You can scale, crop, or reposition your photos and video clips once you place them in a block. Want to change up the organization of your video? Rearrange blocks by dragging and dropping them into place.
Leave negative space for text. You’ll want to leave plenty of room for text in each media block. An easy way to do this is to use photos where your subject is positioned at the edge of the frame, instead of directly in the center.
Add captions, quotes, or your own words to any image or video clip in seconds. Move your text around within blocks to make it more legible for viewers. You can even leave out the photos and video clips entirely and just add a text block without media to put the focus on your words.
Use text legibility. The text legibility feature lets you add transparent background behind your text to make it easier to read. Toggle it on to ensure that viewers can see all the text you’ve added to your video.
Match your text to your brand or messaging by changing colors, text size, and fonts. You can also change your video style to select different text animations. Once you’ve finished adding text to your video, produce your project and share it with the world. Download your video or post to social media with a click of a button, right from Animoto.
Timing is everything. Preview each block of text to ensure viewers have enough time to read it.
Finally, a simple way to add text to video. Write what you have to say, upload photos and video clips, then share your project in a matter of minutes.
