Photext - Annotate your pictures for iOS

Download.com Staff May 7, 2014

Photext is an easy-to-use app that lets you add annotations to your images. Its interface could stand to be a bit more intuitive, but its multiple annotation options make it worth trying out.


Plenty of options: Photext lets you customize just about every aspect of your annotations, including the font, text size and color, and background shapes and colors. Annotations can easily be resized and repositioned. The app even lets you insert a map pinpointing the location of the image, a useful feature if you're annotating photos taken while you're traveling.

Easy sharing: Photext makes it easy to share your annotated images. In-app access to Facebook, Twitter and Mail, as well as the ability to save images to the Camera Roll, get your photos where you want them to quickly.


Not totally intuitive: Photext's interface takes some getting used to, particularly the numerous unlabeled icons whose functions aren't immediately obvious. It didn't take us too terribly long to figure it out, but some exploration was required before we really got the hang of it.

Bottom Line

Photext is a powerful and flexible option for annotating images. Whether you're doing it for educational or professional purposes, or just for fun, Photext makes it easy to add and customize annotations. It's worth investing a few minutes to figure out its interface in order to use its numerous features.
