Adding Text to Digital Photos

Hi,

I am looking for a simple (preferably free) programme that will allow me to add captions to my digital photo's before I turn them into slide shows and copy them to CD/DVD.

The software that came with my camera allows me to enhance the pictures but does not allow me to add my own text.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks for tha buscrew.

Unfortunately Photo Story 3 can only be played back with Windows Media Player and I want to be able to play back my CD/DVD's through my TV with a domestic DVD player.

You can often do this with the software you are using to create the slideshow in the first place.

If you have XP, windows moviemaker is free and with this you can make transitions, add sound track etc and add a text overlay to each frame/picture.

Picasa2 is a free, simple but efficient photo editing program which includes an easy photo caption feature:

If you do use Windows MovieMaker, remember that you can download Version 2 from the Microsoft website.

Just what I wanted, a nice easy system, thanks a lot.

Also easy with Picasa2 to create backups of pix files and update them as required.

Thanks mate, I`ve already backed up to DVD which I thought safest due to my lack of knowledge. I`ll have to learn about the updating bit.
