Add Text to Photos Using Markup for iPhone and iPad
Edited by Jay, Eng
Adding text or captions to annotate your photos and screenshots is an excellent way to communicate specific details directly to your audience. Because Markup comes built into iOS, there isn't a dire need for third-party applications, at least for everyday edits and captions.
Adding some words or pointing out specific things on a photo with arrows, underlines, and highlights are far more effective than trying to explain it verbally. It's also a fun way to spruce up images that you share with your friends and family.
In the following article, we're going to walk through the steps of adding text to an image on an iPad or iPhone using Markup.
For this guide, we used an iPhone 7 running iOS 13.5.
