Adding Text To An Image In FrontPage

How To Add Text To An Image

Adding text to an image is useful if your image needs some explanation or if you want to add some je ne sais quois to it. The best way to do this would be to use an image editor like Adobe Fireworks or Photoshop, but if you don't have one handy, you can always do it in FrontPage.

To add text to an image in FrontPage, click on the image to select it and then click the text icon from the Pictures' toolbar on the bottom of the screen. When the text box appears on your image, type in the text you want to add. You can then move the text around and format it as you would with any other text box in FrontPage.

Here's an image before we add any text:

ooh matron!

Not bad. Here's that same image with some text applied:

ooh matron!

You can see that the second image delivers a bigger impact!
