    Insert text with arrow into picture

    I would like to insert a piece of text with a arrow pointing to the object. Does any body know any software that will do this. The more basic the better and free even better !

    You have several options how to do that:
    - let someone else to do it
    - draw a basic arrow by yourself (seriously, it's just 3 lines forming a shape...!)
    - find some arrow you like on google and put it on your image wherever you want
    - spend some time on google searching for a free software, which does exactly what you want while you don't even need to move your finger

    Every graphical editor can be hard to use if you're a complete computer noob. I don't know of any ....-proof software, which can read your mind and do it for you. If you have trouble drawing 3 straight lines, try to consider the first option I mentioned in this post.

    Here's a screen shot of how I added a red arrow to a 'space' shot of the earth in GIMP 2.6.



    I found the red arrow with a simple Google Images search. I then opened both images.

    I scaled the arrow to a more appropriate size. I selected the white background around it and made it transparent. If I wanted text, it's just a matter of writing it onto the arrow image. Then, Copy All.

    Going to the Earth image, I pasted the arrow, rotated it, and positioned it where I wanted.

    Save As..... done.
    I own stock in FotoMat.
    Go forth and actuate!
