    I have a photo I am adding a text box to and want to change the color of the text box. Is it possible to change the color of the text box on a photo from my IPad.

    Thank you,

    Julie Wendt

    Welcome to iMore, Julie! I would do it using an app called Superimpose. But it might take you a while to figure out how. Register in and post a few times, then post the photo. I can do it for you.

    I believe you are using Preview, the macOS handy dandy viewing tool with some decent editing functions.

    The iPad does not has Preview, at least not with the editing tools. I use Pixelmator, which is like PhotoShop for iPad.


    Scratch all of this. I figured something interesting out.

    Short answer, no, with an interesting but:



    I used that block character in Notes on a picture I imported to it and edited with Markup. That gave me a square background.

    █████

    I added and enlarged the block characters as I needed them. Then I added my text, which is always without a background. The newest test will always be on top of the old text.

    From there, you can export your picture with text to what ever you want.

    You can easily change the color of the text box using Superimpose.
    White to pink.
