If you open it in Paint you can click on the A on the toolbar to add text.

I think you will get a better effect using Irfanview click here and use Edit/Insert text into selection

It says in paint format not supported or cannet read file

in word i open pic file all types and it dont come up only like jgjhfgjmbmg'#/' that on the page


What format is the picture in i.e jpeg, bitmap?

Get Irfanview - that opens all sorts of picture formats.

Strange - when I open a file (JPEG or GIF) in IrfanView, the 'Insert Text' option is greyed-out.

How do I correct it?
