I would like to introduce Add Text feature in Picasa program as I found it useful for photographers if they wants to add texts without using Photoshop. As usual, the text feature is resided in Basic Fixes tab and look for the button which has ABC wording.
Press it once and you are able to add or edit texts on your photo. The good thing about this text tool is it does not limit you to put the text anywhere you like. Just use mouse cursor to click on photo and you are able to add/edit the texts.
I love the flexibility of Free Picasa program because it allows you to do basic photo tasks such as Crop, Straighten, Redeye remove, auto contrast, retouch, add text and fill light. All the tools are located within Basic Fixes tab and you can always applying other features by single click.
Google Picasa saves me lots of time to edit the photos. Google Picasa is a great Photo Editor that you must have to enhance your photos.
