I currently have a 4 minute video that, now that i look at it 12 years later, would love to be able to write on some of the pictures as to where they were taken.  Can i do that in any editing software.

Tried to upload the video and it wouldn’t work probably the wrong format.

Hello Mary,

Sure, you can add text – but it depends on the software as to how you do it. Are you on PC? or Mac?

Google Photos cannot add text to video. I would use iMovie on Mac, or Microsoft Photos on Windows, or Filmora Go on Android.
