Adding text to an image in Squarespace is a breeze. You can do this with just a few steps.

To start, go to your image’s page, and click the “Edit” button.

From there, go to the section containing the image where you want to place your text and click the “Add Block” button in the upper-left corner.

Select the “Text” option from the list of blocks available in the menu. This will add a text block to the current section.

Place the text block over the image and click on the pen icon from the options to edit the text block.


PRO TIP: If you want to add text over an image in Squarespace, we recommend using the built-in Text Block. This will allow you to overlay your text on top of the image and make sure that the text is properly formatted and responsive.

Type in your text in the text block. You can also add style to the text using the text settings just above the text block.

Finally, click the Done drop-down arrow and select “Save” to save your changes.

And there you have it! You have successfully added text over an image on your website!
