Adjust letter spacing on Fotor


The formatting of text on a photo or design can really help it appear aesthetically pleasing and remain symmetrical. When adding text to your images, photos, or templates, remember to take size into account. A larger text size subconsciously tells the audience how much more important it is. The opposite is true for smaller text.
