Adding Text to Photos
The Photo Pos Pro photo editor Software comes with two very powerful text tools: the (regular) text block tool, with which you can add text segments to the program and the Text Over Path Tool, with which you can draw text along a variety of paths (such as a circular text, a wave-shaped text and more). With the text tools you can add a wide variety of texts to the picture, from simple, one-hue text segments to complex, multi-hue texts, textures, patterns and color transitions, texts along paths (such as a circular text, a wave-shaped text and more), texts with different effects and more.

With the Regular/Block Text Tool you can add text blocks/segments to a photo.

If you wish to draw texts in different shapes such as a text along a circular path or a wave-like path, a text along a diagonal line in any other shape, use the Text Over Path Tool.
