When you’re typing up a document and need to create a watermark, you may be inclined to leave Microsoft Word and another PhotoShop type program to write on top of a specific image.
If all you want to do is add some text on top of your image, there’s no need to open another program. Word has options you can use to not only add text to your image, but you can also add your personal touch by changing the color and font.
How to Add Text to Any Image – Microsoft Word
If you haven’t already added your image to the Word document, it’s time to insert the image. Go to Insert > Illustrations > Pictures and choose from where you want to upload your image.
Once you’ve inserted your image, click on Image Format at the top, followed by the Wrap Text option. In the list of options, click on Behind Text.
As soon as you click on this option, whatever you type will appear on top of the image. Keep in mind that the color the Text will appear in as default will be black. So, if the image you inserted is dark, you’re not going to see the Text. To change the color, double-click on the Text, and choose your new color.
As long as you’re there, you can also change the font of the Text and the size as well. You’ll also see the option to add a bullet point list or a numbered one.
Adding Text on top of an image is a quick way to add a watermark to your image. It’s great for those times when you don’t have time to create a fancier one.
