I'm making a birthday card for a friend. Is there a free app/site to add text to a photo that I could still save as a jpeg? i'm thinking i may have to bite the bulled and pay for the latest version of graphic converter.

Preview in recent OSes will do it nicely for you.

Here's a short video showing two ways to do it with OS X's built-in "Markup/Annotate" feature (available in the last few versions of OS X, I believe):

I've done that sort of thing with an older version of Pages.

thanks for that. i muddled around with Mark Up in Preview. couldn't quite get it to do what i wanted but I worked up something. Closer to the mark was an Adobe site called Spark which I'm not sure what the point is but I was able to cobble something there. gave the person who needed it for a card both versions.

also downloaded the latest Graphic Converter which i use so infrequently i forget how to use it and feel wasteful paying for it since i rarely need it - until i need it!

thanks all.
