    Take your photo
    drag your photo out of IPhoto onto your desktop(I have the 08 version-To see your version of IPhoto- Open IPhoto, then look at the top left corner of your Mac screen next to black Apple logo, click on "Iphoto", click on "About Iphoto" then window that pops up tells you your version in the title).
    You drag the photo by going to the photos section of IPhoto-left click on the photo once until it's highlighted with a yellow border-left click again and HOLD DOWN your left click and drag the photo to you desktop (while dragging you will see a red and green button appear.
    Once on the des top look up at the top of your screen for the menu bar again for the "TOOLS" menu.
    Scroll down for the "ANNOTATE" option and Choose TEXT Tutuapp 9apps Showbox
    Your cursor will now change to a + sign. put your cursor over the area of photo you want to add text to and LEFT CLICK and then DRAG your + sign left to right to open your text box.
    Once you have your rectangle text box open-You will see directly above the photo an "A" Click on the A to open your font menu to choose size/type of font. Type your font!
    You can also change the color of your font by left clicking and holding your left mouse button and scrolling over your typed (this is called highlighting your text. Then choose the color of font you want. I chose white for my text as it was easiest to see.
    Click on file and then click SAVE
    NOTE: Once your done with your text BE SURE it's all EXACTLY correct because I haven't found a way to edit my text after it's saved!
    what about windows 10 ?

    This thread is ancient. iPhoto was replaced by Photos long ago. Photos editing suite includes Markup which includes text. No long-winded process necessary.

    If the shoe fits, buy it in every colour.
