Adding text to a picture

One way is to use Paint.NET click here (from Technotiger). You may need 7-Zip click here (from Technotiger) to open it.

Adding text to a picture in a document, see this thread click here

A disadvantage of the latter is that you can't save the result as a jpg. unless you use Snipping Tool or a print screen utility.

I hope you are now able to add your text, it really is quite easy - Hint: after adding the text, get colour from the colour box at bottom left in, just click on any colour.

Text Size, Font etc uses the same icons as in most text programs.

Aha! You have to get Colors out of Window. Can you change the colour of text you've already typed?

Yes, just click on a different colour - But I did not know either, until I tried it!!

I use Paint to add text and the copyright symbol ©
to my Photographs. If I resize I always save as a JPEG

Thanks, I'm having a go with PagePlus. I was happy with PictureIt!, it was so easy to use. I only really need to add text and sometimes clone painting.

After careful testing, Paint is the easiest for me - click here
