StickerTextView is an subclass of UIImageView. You can add multiple text to it, edit, rotate, resize the text as you want with one finger, then render the text on Image.


  • You can add multiple Text to StickerTextView at the same time
  • Multiple line Text support
  • Rotate, resize the text with one finger
  • set the Color, alpha, font of the text
  • StickerTextView also handle the process of rendering text on Image
  • Written in Swift



To integrate StickerTextView into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

pod "JLStickerTextView", "~> 0.1.1"


Just drag the file in Source to your project



First, import StickerView, then subclass the UIImageView, which you want to add text on, to StickerTextView, like this:

import StickerTextView
class ViewController: UIViewController {
    @IBOutlet var stickerView: stickerImageView!

Add new Label

It is quite easy to add new label to current StickerImageView:


set the Label

You can only set the color, font and alpha of the label now, more will be added in the future. (alignment, lineSpacing and so on)


stickerView.textColor = UIColor.whiteColor()


sticker.textAlpha = CGFloat(textAlpha)


stickerView.fontName = fontName
**Note**: when you set the properties, you make change to the selected TextLabel.

###Render Text on Image
When you feel good, you are going to render the Text on Image:

let image = stickerView.renderTextOnView(stickerView)
UIImageWriteToSavedPhotosAlbum(image!, nil, nil, nil)

Scale stickerView proportionally

This function is not complete yet, I just make it to fit my requirement.


When you render the text on UIImageView whose content mode is AspectFit, it is possible you will get some unwanted border. This function will scale UIImageView to fit the image.


Here are some ideas:

  • more options for text(alignment, lineSpacing…..)
  • interface to custome the appearance of StickerLabelView(close Button, rotate button, border,etc)
  • more general solution for Scaling stickerView proportionally
