I don't know if this has been asked before and I apologize if it has. I want to write on a photo that I have. I have seen photos on Myspace that have sayings on them. For example "Thaks for the add ". I would like to do something like that to my own and I do not know how to do it.  I do not have Paint Shop Pro or any program like that.  Are you able to do something like that without a special program? Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Re: Writing on photos

You can also use the Paint program in accessories.

Bring up the picture you want to put a caption on and right click it. Click on "open with" and then click on "paint." When the picture opens in paint go to the menu on the left and click the top right one that looks like a square made of dots. Then go to the bottom image of the two yellow boxes that pop up on the left and click on that. This will make the caption background transparent. Now click on the capital A which adds a text box for you to type in. Point and click your mouse on the picture where you want the text to be and drag an outline of a text box the size you need. When you click inside the box you can begin your text, adjusting it to be the font and size you want when the text editor pops up. At the bottom left of the page is a box of colors. Click on the color you want the text to be. Any mistake can be deleted by clicking on "edit" and then "undo." When you're satisfied click on file and "save as" and name the file something other than the original. This way you still have the original in case you ever change your mind.

Hope that helps.

Re: Writing on photos

well, if you want to you could do it with just Paintbrush; Though if you want to put the text at an angle (other then 90, 180 or 270 degrees) anti-aliasing will probably become a problem. Find some random image you have on your computer and right click on it and press "edit"; then press [ctrl]+[n]* to create a new image. Then press [ctrl]+[e]^ to bring up the edit attribute screen where you can set the canvas'es dimensions in pixels, inches or centimeters. If you want to be nice, be advised that anything wider then 258 pixels will force horizontal scrolling in browsers with a screen width of less then 800 pixels. Then from there, you kinda just have to play with the tools to figure out what they do. There's a text tool in the second column and fifth row of the toolbar on the left of the screen, and knock yourself out.

otherwise, you can download Gimp; it's free and on-par with Adobe. If you're going to buy something I'd highly recommend Jasc.

if you don't like using keyboard navigation, you can use these commands instead and it'll teach you how to navigate with the mouse....
