Word Swag is a fantastic application when it comes to looking at how to add text to a picture. In the past to achieve the same result I would have to use a photo editor to crop, resize and write on the photo now its all on one handy little application.
This application has saved me an incredible amount of time and has allowed me to distribute content in a much more timely manner.
Who would have thought that figuring out how to add text to a picture could have such a positive impact upon my time management? Anyway enough about me lets dive into the application and take a look.
Wordswag Photo Editor
When you download Word Swag and fire it up this is the image that you will be greeted with. It is a relatively simple user interface and has all of the options that you need to effectively edit and create fantastic looking photos for social media.
The software also offers an option to access a free library full of photos if you are looking for that bit of extra inspiration. It should be noted that the free selection of photos is nothing to be scoffed at as they have a great selection, especially for a free application, definitely worth diving into for a look.
