Add captions using Google Docs Drawing tool

This solution might require a few extra steps, but it’s the best solution for adding captions to images in Google Docs without distorting the text. What you can do is add the image in Google Docs drawing tool and use the text box feature to attach text to the image and make it a single edited image. Follow the below instructions to do it: -Click Draw on the top menu and select “Edit with Text”-Click the text box tool at the bottom of the page, where you can type in text or use an image as a template.

Click on the “Insert” menu at the top and select “New” from the “Drawing” option.

Now either use the “Image” option here to upload the image or copy/paste the image from the document if it’s already uploaded to it.

Afterward, click on the “Text box” button from the top bar and place the box right below the image.

The text box is fully editable, you can adjust size, change box/font color, and even add shapes. Once edited, click on the “Save and Close” button at the top-right corner to insert the image in the document.

The text will be part of the image and you can edit it any time by double-clicking on the image.

Use a Google Docs Add-on to add captions

If you want a quicker method, then you can also use a third-party add-on that will add captions in bulk. However, the captions will be separate from the image unlike in the above method. For this purpose, we will use the Caption Maker add-on for Google Docs. Let’s see how to use it:

Many companies like Amazon, Target & even Facebook are using Adobe’s Captivate to create captions automatically. These third-party add-ons are not only faster but also cheaper than hiring a professional captioned. They do not require as much work by the cautioner.

Click on the image to select it and then click on “Add-ons” and select “Start” in the “Caption Maker” add-on options.

In the right-side penal, click on “Show options”.

Under the “Images and Drawings” section, type caption text in the “New” field. By default, it is set to add “Figure (image number)”. You can also adjust the caption placement location here.

There are also options to adjust font style, color and size, etc. When you are done, click on “Captionize” to apply the caption.

The caption text will be editable right inside the document and it will be applied to all the images in the document.

Wrapping up

I personally find the first method to be most reliable and as it adds clean captions that stick with the image. Of course, it does add a few extra steps, but it’s the only option we have currently. For adding captions in bulk, Caption Maker is definitely worth checking out. Let us know in the comments if you know any other way to add captions in Google Docs images.
