    Hi. I am new to the forum & inexperienced with editing pictures. I would like to be able to add text etc to my photos and am unable to do it with ACDSee. Can anyone advise me on inexpensive software options to allow me to do this type of work?

    I can take the photos, but want to add the text, lines etc.

    Thank you

    The Gimp is free, most other things are very expensive.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I'm sure there must be plenty of programs that could add text like that. Even Microsoft Paint should be able to handle that.

    A really good & free software package is The Gimp. I use Photoshop, but a lot of people here use The Gimp and seem to really like it...especially because it's free. http://www.gimp.org/
