As a comment to my two recent posts: Why Adding Text Over Pictures is the Next Big Thing and Is Adding Text Over Photos the Death of Quality Content? I’d like to refer to an article about what happens to the search ability on the Internet.
One of my favorite lifestyle bloggers has done it f-o-r-e-v-e-r: written text over her images. When I started to use this technique at work at our company intranet, I got from almost zero responses to A LOT over night. And when I played around with Labelbox on my Facebook pics, everybody asked me what tool I used to put the label in the photo.
