Add captions, names and other text to your digital images with the easy-to-use InstaFonts

Add captions to your digital images with the simple but effective InstaFonts.

If you like to take pictures but really love to tell a story, you'll appreciate the easy to use InstaFonts, which lets you add customizable text to your images. You can insert a caption, create a short description, or just let others know who's in the picture.

With its clean, intuitive interface (and limited options), there shouldn't be much of a learning curve with this app, even for those who've never done any image editing. InstaFont's main window displays the image you want to add the text to over a short menu that lets you pick the font, its color, and texture. With nearly 40 fonts, 50 textures, and almost as many font colors, you'll have plenty of variations to choose from without being overwhelmed. Aside from customizing the font, there are only a few other editing options allowing you to move, scale, or rotate your text. End results will vary based on your own creative eye, but we were pretty impressed with the overall quality of the test images. One tip we can share is to keep your text as short as possible for the best results. Think punchy headline or one-sentence description, not full narrative. As the publisher promises and the name suggests, InstaFonts is compatible with Instagram, so you can easily share your work online, but you don't need to use the popular image-sharing site to get all the benefits of InstaFonts.

For those familiar with full-featured image-editing programs, InstaFonts might seem a little light on features, but we think that's one of its biggest selling points. It's perfect for the casual user who doesn't want the process to get in the way of the fun.
