Can some one please do this for me?

I need someone to put this text on the picture below. If possible, but not necessarily, it should look GHETTOish.

rOb tHa JeWeLry sToRE n tElL eM maKe me a gRiLL

Also, could you tell me a free/cheap way to accomplish this for in the future?

I just used that and I lack the ability to edit photos..

I need this pic with that text because my friend asked what a grill is so I took this pic and I'm gonna put it on a comment on his myspace with those lyrics (rOb tHa JeWeLry sToRE n tElL eM maKe me a gRiLL) on it.

BTW in case you're wondering the song is "Grillz" by Nelly (http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?playlistId=91803902&s=143441&i=91804021).

Just adding text in a new layer doesn't really require any skill... (to make it good requires skill, but that's another issue... ;)). You just need a quick tutorial...

I just used Seashore to do this (added a new layer (Document-like icon in the Layers (and Channels) Utility Window), then used the text tool ('T') and pasted the text (line brake using opt-return), chose font, size (trial and error) and colour and saved it):

where do you want the text? what color, how big and how bold?

edit:

:confused:

I just used Seashore to do this:

hahaha, you used pink comic sans, that's hilarious.

How's this for sneaky? I found a way you can put text over images without an image editor!

1. Put the image anywhere a web browser can see it. Get the URL.

2. Put this text in TextEdit:<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
h1.absoluteposition {
font-family: Comic Sans MS, cursive;
font-style: bold;
color: pink;
position: absolute;
left: 100px;
top: 200px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body background="http://forums.macrumors.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=44939">
<h1 class="absoluteposition">
rOb tHa JeWeLry sToRE n tElL eM maKe me a gRiLL
</h1>
</body>
</html>3. Change the body background= URL to the URL of your image.

4. Change the message text to whatever you want.

5. Set the text style with font-family and font-style and color.

6. Set the text position with left and top.

7. Save the file as myfile.html.

8. In the Finder, drag file myfile.html into a web browser.

9. Make a screen capture!

sneaky indeed. you never fail us. :)

mitthrawnuruodo got it. :p

comic sans is just one of the most ridiculous fonts ever and in pink it's just plain funny. it works perfectly for this particular purpose. a grill - nice touch. :D
