I’ve received some questions on how I add hand-drawn arrows and opaque circles with text to my photos, so I decided to tape an episode of Wednesday Wisdom to show you how I do it.
Ever since Pinterest launched, it can be helpful to add a little something like text to some of your photos. For instance, if you search for recipes on Pinterest, you’re probably going to find pictures with text that tell you what the recipe is without having to click on it. The person who pins doesn’t always get it right, and they don’t always link it to the original source. Plus, it can be fun to add elements like hand drawn arrows!
There are other programs other than Illustrator that will do similar things. I use Illustrator for far more than adding elements to photos, so if that’s all you want it for, I’d shop around–maybe even use an app like this one for your iPhone photos.
