I need to add text commentary to these jpegs.

Hello canadio,

Bernie (post above) suggested expanding the canvas width. I'll give an example using Photoshop. I do this quite often.

1. This is the jpg:

2. I expanded the canvas width (can be more if needed depending on number of words to type) and entered my commentary using the type tool, selecting the font, color, and size:

3. Then I cropped the excess canvas width and applied a border:

That took about five minutes to do.

Richard - that is exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this! At last a workaround!
