How I learned to add a speech bubble to Photos
I am constantly learning new things. Which is a good way to keep your mind active. As I try to expand the audience of Tronster.net, I started researching different methods to accomplish some of the tasks I can see myself having to complete.
A quick search of the internet, and I discovered you can add a speech bubble to Photos on you MAC with "Preview". Who knew. The directions I found were really dated. However, they were basically the same, and I was able to try it out. When prepping this post, I discovered this can be done inside "Photos". Below is a quick guide on how you can accomplish the same thing.
Find the photo
Open your "Photos" app. Mine is in the sidebar. Choose you photo and click on edit. I like to make a duplicate of the photo I will be working on, here's how:
To duplicate a photo in photo
- Open the Photo
- Right Click with a windows mouse
- Control click with a Mac Mouse
- Select "Duplicate 1 photo"
Open the Edit Menu
Get to the Markup menu
We will be getting to the "Mark-up" menu. Select the three dots and the Mark up
Here is the "Speech Bubble"
On the top left, you can see your choices for dropping shapes into the photo. The speech bubble is on of your choices. Select it and it will appear on your image.
Thats it!! So Simple. Now you can move the bubble around, you can move the tag end around. Its great. There are options to change the text color, the fill color. The outline. All from Photo.
I was glad to discover this, and should have discovered it long ago. Just never needed it. Now that I am going big time, figured I would share what i learned.
