How to add text to a video online

Add text to a video in a few simple steps!

Allow viewers to read a video

You have a video but you need to add some comments or maybe titles. Pixiko tells: “Don’t download any programs”, because you can add text to a video online. Just use our Tool and your video will become more captivating and understandable.

It is so useful when you show presentation and need slideshow with a text. Add captions, descriptions, quotations, and any other text; express yourself with the help of our Editor. It is easy, fast and interesting to make footage more attractive for viewers.

Just upload your video, using the button, or drag-and-drop your file. Choose a canvas size. It may be square or 16:9 for Youtube etc. Catch a glimpse of the “TEXT” button. Type everything that you want, locate a text area where you want, change text size as you want. All is possible for your work of art.


Click the “TEXT” button again if you want to add another portion of your text. It is possible to change a font, color, position. Rotate it and place as you need. You can even remove it with one small button if these words seem inappropriate on the shot.

Do you want to make your words more captivating? Use prepared styles. Add shadows e.g. neon effect, retro, glowing and more others. Look how it shines!

Settings at the bottom help to place your text on a video at the right moment. Check your movie and you will see how your video gets new textual overlays. If you want to do something more with your video, e.g. crop it or reverse, just do it with great pleasure.
