Tutorial: How to Add Text to an Instagram Picture

For the destash, some of you might want to add ID numbers, or measurements to your fabric pictures. If that’s something you want to do, but you don’t know how, then you need to get a free app called MOLDIV. There are other apps out there too, but this works for me. Search for it in the App store and install it on your device.

You need to have the photos already taken on your phone. Open the app and click on an image you want to edit.

At this point you can make it square, and Instagram ready. That way you will get your text positioned exactly where you want it.

There’s two ways of making it square, white borders or “fit” is default, click “fill” to get rid of them and crop it square instead.

You can adjust the crop by sliding the image by touching the screen.

You can also zoom by using two fingers and pulling them away from each other, and zoom back out by bringing them towards each other again.

Now to add text- press the text button.

Type what you want and then click the Aa button to select a font. You can go through a few until you find one you like.

The wheel next to that is where you can change the colour.

You can then press the text and move it to where you want it on the picture.

You can keep adding more text, just edit it to what you want it to look like and click the tick, then go ahead and go through the text process again.

Click the share icon at the top of the screen when you’re done.

Click Save to Album.

This will save your text added photo to your phone photos! It doesn’t replace the original without cropping and text.
