USE TEXT TOOL TO PUT WORDS ON A PIC.

OR USE CANVAS SIZE TO ADD SOME AREA TO TYPE INTO BELOW THE PICURE.

USING PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS 2.0, WINDOWS XP, DELL DIMENSION XPS B 866, 256MB RAM, 45GB HD.

HOW DO I ADD A CAPTION UPON A JPG PHOTOFILE (VARIOUS FONTS, COLOR, POSITION)?

Gerald,,

As Mac said you can either use the Text Tool and type directly onto the photograph or you can use Image>Resize>Canvas Size to add a border to your photo … you will then be able to use the Text tool to add type in the border…

Try it out but if you have problems then just ask more questions … but please take off your Caps Lock before you type (Typing everything in Capitals is considered to be sort of like shouting) 🙂

Hi, to all!

Is your proposed solution a work around a PE2 problem with the ‘Adding file information’ function? I can enter the file info into the dialog box but it does not appear in print-preview or in a hard copy printout even though I have clicked on CAPTION.

Works for me.
It only prints the part in the General/Caption field.

Note that if your pic is already at the limit of your paper size, there of course isn’t room for it; it will not size the pic down to make room for the caption.

I mis-understood the ‘adding file info’ function. I thought it would print everything entered into the File Info dialogue box.

Thanks
