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.

  1. 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!

  2. This software is excellent, thank God for bringing me to this site, you are an amazing God. Bless you more & more, now our media in our church is having a nice presentation.

  3. 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.

  4. Great job on this tutorial! Your style is very user-friendly and is useful for folks with different skill levels. Keep up the good work!

  5. 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,
