Add Text to an Image

You can encourage people to click on an image by adding text to the image. One picture may be worth a thousand words, but you can get a thousand and ten words by adding text. Make sure the text is informative, not hard sell. The idea is to pin an image that encourages repinning and eventually clicking to your Pinterest profile and then to your website where the image is based. Start by selecting a high-quality image with an area where text would display nicely and edit it at www.picmonkey.com, a simple online picture-editing site. You can do the same thing with most any graphics program.
