Dear Computer Lady,
Curious what you don’t like about using Irfanview to add text to an image.
I have used it for this purpose for many pictures.
Also which program do you like to use?
I find it hard to place the text exactly where I want it in Irfanview. It would work better for me if I could drag the text around in the image.
As for what I use, it depends on exactly what I am trying to do.
Two open source programs that I like to use are Gimp and Inkscape. They are free, open source programs with all the power of some of the more expensive graphics programs.
When I want to quickly edit an image, I often use a desktop publishing program called, PagePlus by Serif Software. It is easy to use (although not made for image editing)
