In more ways than one, PowerPoint is more than capable of getting the job done, therefore, we recommend it highly.

OK, so the first thing you must do here, is to insert the image into a PowerPoint slide. We can do this by either dragging the photo to the area or click on Insert > Pictures, then select from the following options:
- Your local device
- Stock images
- Online Images
From there, select the image or images you want to add, then hit the OK button to have them appear in the slide.
2] Insert a Text Box on the picture
The next step then is to add a text box to the area where you want to add the caption. This is quite simple to get done, so let’s talk about it right now.
Before adding your caption, please click on the preferred image, then select the Insert tab once more. From there, click on Text Box.

3] Add text to the Text Box
After selecting the Text Box option, it is now time to create the box on the picture. Usually, captions are placed at the bottom are above the image, so draw the box above, below, or anywhere that makes sense for your presentation.
Once the box is completed, simply write the caption within the box. When you’re done, resize the box if needed, and that’s it for creating captions on images in PowerPoint.
