Hello familydude3

You cannot write directly on pictures in the Yola Sitebuilder. However, you can add text to your pictures using Picnik: a powerful image manipulation tool that Yola has integrated. Here is something you can try:

1. Upload the picture you want to use and in the File Manager, click "Edit Picture".
2. The Picnik image editor will load with your picture inside it.
3. When it is finished loading, click the "Create" tab.
4. Below the "Create" tab, click the second button from the left - which will give you the option to add text to your picture.
5. When you have added your text click the yellow "save to Yola" button in the top right hand corner of the Picnik dialog box.

You will then have a picture with text on it that you can display on your site.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

No because it is part of the image and not actual text

Hi Çeviri,
Any text on an image cannot be read by a search engine, you could add an 'alt' attribute so search engines can read that
