Creating Captioned Memes in Mac Photos

You can add captions to your photos right in the Photos app if you use the built-in Markup extension. You can add text and provide contrast between the text and the image. You can also add speech bubbles, lines and other elements. You can also do this to image files using Preview.

    Good post. I always select and duplicate the image I want to mark up so I can do multiple versions of the original. Wish there was a markup extension that brought back the cloud-shaped thought bubble.

    It is also worth noting that if you go back to Markup in Photos you can usually edit the text you have previously inserted.

    @ JF You could always take the time to draw a cloud form with no back ground and save(click and drag to desktop) it then just bring it in any time you want, copy it and then re-save the blank copy, re-size in the new photo, add text then save the new photo.

    Great job.

    How do we outline text?
    I can’t seem to find that capability
    in Preview, Photos, or the iWork apps

    I should have mentioned the captioning text on the
    video still shown above as what I mean by outlining.
    Sorry.

    Bob: That’s actually a brand new feature of Pages/Numbers/Keynote that I talk about here: https://macmost.com/new-text-fill-options-in-pages-and-keynote.html
