Summary: this is a brief tutorial on placing text over video in worship presentation software. These techniques can be used in most any software (except Powerpoint), but for demonstration purposes I used MediaShout (Media Shout).

I cover ways to make text show up clearly on most backgrounds, and how to position text so that it compliments art and imagery instead of fighting for attention. I also show some of my favorite fonts.

    This was really great Josiah, in just a little bit of time I learnt a whole lot. I know I will have to play with Easy Worship and see how it works, but thanks again. God Bless you and keep you well!

    Enjoyed this very much. Although I am more “into” having the words fairly large (usually 4-6 lines per screen) your instruction on placing the text around objects on the screen was wonderful; you opened my eyes to a whole new way of doing things.

    Thanks for a great site, excellent products, and a VERY economical price point. You’re a huge help to our media ministry.

    First of all, thanks for the website. Second, thanks for the tips. I have been using PowerPoint for many years and have just recently started using Media Shout. I really do appreciate you sharing your ideas. I will use them this Sunday.

    Thanks again,
