Adding Text to Images with Microsoft Paint
Windows 7 has been shipped with new versions of some of the “classic" Windows applications, most notably Paint. Available from Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint, this basic image manipulation and art package can be used to add text to images.
To begin, open the application and use the menu tab to Open the image you want to add the text to.
With the image open, zoom in as necessary via the control in the lower left corner, and use the A icon in the toolbar to open the Text tool. The mouse pointer will turn into an insertion point; left-click and drag this in the area you wish to add the text.
As you do this, the Text Tools tab will appear; here you will be able to change the font and size of the text you enter, as well as use the palette to change colour. You might also adjust the position of the text by aligning your mouse pointer with the edge of the text box; the pointer will turn into a cross and you can left-click and drag this around.
When you’re done, press CTRL+S to save or use Save as from the menu to retain your changes under a different file name.
