    Susan, I'd like to learn how to do that too.

    Yesterday I purchased a used book (IPad2 for dummies) for $5. It would probably be a good idea to get something like that for the laptop too.

    if your pc drive on windoof: download "paint" for free, there in the toolbox is a letter to add text to your pics.
    It can colourate the letters, has different animated text-ures and so on.

    It's that sort of simple computer tech confusion that has me ripping my hair out Susan. I need to go back to school to do something like this.

    first i thought you genius might know how to unclick from installing surplusbrowser & games!!!
    It was shurly asked to you if you want this!!! sorry this are traps for grandma's or kids under 8!!!
    As this is allready 20 years standart for windows user (sorry i drive linnux and use gimp for pics retush),
    i had no chance to pretest the downloadlinks...

    Anyhow you could find help in google to remoove the spam software, but windows can do it:
    through the add or remove programs in the control panel.The Currently installed programs list in the Add or Remove Programs tool lists all of the Windows-compatible programs that have an uninstall program or feature. So open control panel, go on software button,wait for the programms to be listed,
    then remove gamepacket, browseraddon!

    Than take a pic of your choice, open paint, open this pic in the topright collumn,...
    then check the toolbox, there should be a button with an "A", the usual text tool...
    Check this one by click/l and than there should be a cross on the curser to mark a field on the pic
    where you want the text to appear,make the box on thepic, type some words to test, it can be mooved till you export or save the pic ( decide forthe quality and the jpg or png or tiff kind you want)
    later see in the toolbox for change of color, texture or wordart

    I'm wondering if the two of you can skype as this would likely be more effective in helping Susan and someone like myself who is computer tech deficient.

    not easy assembling a book by hand
    ~close to just giving up on the idea
    maybe it only matters that you've done the work
    ~sharing it, is optional
    unfortunately this is a world that doesn't understand support circles
