Photo posts are a convenient way to add pictures to your Tumblr blog, but they lack the option to add a title to the post. If you prefer to put titles at the top of all your posts -- even picture posts -- the simplest way is to create a text post, and then insert the photo directly into the body of the text.

Step 1

Go to your Tumblr dashboard and click the "Text" posting option.

Step 2

Type the title of your photo in the "Title" field.

Step 3

Click the camera icon to open the File Upload window.

Step 4

Select an image file from your computer or from a cloud drive, then click "Open."

Step 5

Add any additional text and photos you want to include and then click "Post."
