Writing on photo

I want to write text on certain positions on a photo. How can I do it? (the photo will always be the same photo. It will not be selected from the gallery)

This ?

I think I used canvas and an extension…I don’t remember…

This is not exactly it, the application is already in certain locations, for example, in the y10 z3 coordination

Photo printing application. Maybe this term will be clearer.

set the background of canvas to ur selected picture and there you can write text


How can I print that image? register to my gallery

what you want to do is called “saving the canvas”
and if you want to appear it in the gallery, save it to shared storage and use additionally the GalleryRefresh method from the tools extension… App Inventor Extensions: Tools | Pura Vida Apps
protip: do a search in the community to find examples…


it works on emulator but doesn’t show on my mobile

where does the Canvas store the file?
what about using Do it to find it out?


use Do it to debug your blocks, see also tip 4 here App Inventor: How to Learn | Pura Vida Apps

as already said
