what a is simple (free) program...

...I can download, that lets me overlay some text on a picture?

Or can a typical Mac do this right out of the box?

thanks!

I hate to say this, it's really bad, but you can use GIMP. It is way simple for text stuff, but otherwise, it is hard to work.

i was going to suggest the GIMP but it's a bit heavyweight for simple text on pictures isn't it?

I'd say have a go with Preview first, then try skitch then try GIMP

GraphicConvertor is free/share ware and provides this facility, plus a selection of useful image editing tools. It also supports every bitmap file format known to man, and a couple that aren't.

Cheers

There's also GIMPshop, which is GIMP with redesigned buttons and menus to look/act like Photoshop. So, if you know Photoshop, you'll feel at home in GIMPshop.
