How to Add Text for Your 2007 PowerPoint Photo Album

When you create a photo album with PowerPoint 2007, you may want to give some text onto each photo as a prompt. As we know, there are 2 methods for adding text on top of your PowerPoint photo album. One is using WordArt, the other is drawing a text box and then typing text. Move the WordArt or text box over each photo in your presentation, and then rotate the text to accommodate to your photo.

Add Text for Your 2007 PowerPoint Photo Album

In PowerPoint 2007, you can add text on top of a photo using either WordArt or by drawing a text box. Note that when you’re finished, you should group the text and photo so that the text stays with the photo, even if you move the photo.

1. In your presentation, make sure that you’ve inserted a photo.

2. On the Insert tab, in the Text group, click WordArt, click the style of text you want, and then type your text.
