Hi, I'm happy to show you how to add captions to your comics!

If you are a student, you'll need ton click into the classroom your comic is in or needs to be created for.

Then, either click "New Comic" near the top right corner of the page, or click "Edit" if you've already started the comic.

If you are a teacher, you'll start by clicking to "Edit" an existing comic, or click "New Comic" from your "My Comics" tab.

First choose a background from the Backgrounds tab.

Then, click into the Words tab.

Then click "Add Caption" at the top.

Type in your caption on the text line.

If you choose the left most option, the caption will be in a bar at the top of the panel.

If you choose the middle option, your caption will be centred in the middle of the page and the background chosen won't show behind it.
