I copied the photograph into Paint, but could not figure out how to add the text caption. rg
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
no

ok, you use the text box, you click on it, draw it and then type in the text you want.

Then you save the picture and it saves with the text (caption)

Let me know how you go please

Richard, I tried several ways to use Paint and add a caption to my photograph. No matter what I tried, I failed. Please be more explicit on the key strokes to accomplish this task. rg

To do this, in MSPAINT, click on the A symbol under Tools

Then DRAW a box where you want to type.

In the box type your caption.

Then click File, Save.

This will allow you to achieve it.

Let me know how you go please

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
