I'm not 100% sure about Picasa being able to do that in being able to alter the original image. I think it will give it a text tag but that is all. Can someone confirm or deny this as I want to know whether it will alter an original or not too.

I use Paintshop Pro X3 for that and I know it works.

So does Paint in Win 7.

What O/S are you using zpole?

Picasa can easily put text strait on photos

Paint.net is way better than paint. I recommend it for any computer running windows

Picasa can add text, but its a two stage process here explains it (http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Picasa/thread?tid=41f29f3e4779d48a&hl=en) - Just tried it and it works fine.

I just downloaded Picasa and it does work but I would not want Picasa on my PC just to put text on a Photo so it's now gone again :)

Paint.Net does work too.

The GIMP? (http://www.gimp.org/windows) - will certainly do the job but may be an over-kill?

Just get one, get a internet tip how to do it and stick with it.

I use Photoshop LOL but it's for my other work. I also have Photoshop Lightroom which is more simpler ;)

IrfanView can do this
