    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.

    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):

    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:
    Code:
    <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
