Adding Titles and Effects to Your Pictures
Click the Next button, and you are taken to the Add a Title to Your Pictures screen. This is a screen where you can add a title to any photograph (see Figure 10).
Figure 10 Any photograph can have a title and visual effect applied to it.
I always have a title on the first photograph. Using the scrollbar under the timeline, scroll to the far left. Choose the first photograph. The photograph is highlighted in the top viewer.
You can add a title in the text box on the right side. Alignment tools enable you to choose where you want the text to appear on the screen. You can also change the text font, size, style, color, and boldness.
As you add a title, you will notice that it can sometimes be hard to read the title. This is where the Effects drop-down feature under your photograph comes into play. You can apply quite a few visual effects to any photograph. In Figure 10, I added a Washout effect that makes the title stand out better. The following effects also are available:
- Black and White
- Chalk and Charcoal
- Diffuse Glow
- Outline, Black
- Outline, Grey
