    Simple application to put labels on photos, etc.
    Does anyone have a SIMPLE application that can be used to put labels/text on photos, etc. using OS 10.13.6? Some of the apps I have seen are overly complicated/confusing for very simple actions like putting labels/captions on graphics/photos etc.

    Thanx in advance for any reply!

    Hi Mr D.

    How about using Apple's built in feature in the Photos app?

    This article takes you through the steps and is not overly complicated: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guid...ta4e5a733f/mac

    Is this the sort of thing you were looking for?

    Well, Ian has already given you one great option and the macOS Photos app has really improved recently - another good choice is the built-in app 'Preview' - simply open your pic(s) and click on the 'Markup' icon which will open a toolbar w/ plenty of choices, e.g. images can be cropped and resized, text is easily added (fonts can be changed along w/ character size and color), objects can be added such as squares, circles, lines and arrows; also imaging editing is possible but limited (the prism icon) - see the screen captures below for examples.

    Hi Ian - hope all is going well w/ you and family in 2018 - can't believe we're into August already! Yep I was back on some other forums in the first part of the year, mainly related to woodworking - did a number of projects for the Unitarian Fellowship, then we cleaned out our son's old room to reconvert back into a guest bedroom, built a number of end tables - still not done but looking better.
