When to add a Photo Caption?

However, there are certain images which make no use of texts since it may just distort the meaning of the content. This means that you must carefully determine which images would benefit from adding texts and also what message you can add to the content. Here is a quick guide on how to effectively put together words and images:

  • The text should always work with the image. An eye-catching photo will never be as impressive if the corresponding text seems out of place. For example, pair an emotionally moving image with an inspirational quote or something to that effect.
  • Avoid clichés. Be more creative with your texts and avoid images that have been used so many times. Instead, take your own photos and add the right message that best represents the photo.

  • Choose the right color. The color should not blend with the colors of the photo. It also shouldn’t be too bright that it’s overpowering.
  • Make sure to use the right font and size so that the text will not overpower the image. Place the text or quotes in such a way that it will not clash with the image but is still clear to the readers.
  • Keep in mind that the photo caption should always represent what you want your image to convey. The editing tools will always come in handy in terms of enhancing the image or adding relevant quotes, but it can be rendered useless if your image and text do not go well together.
