    www.irfanview.com will let you resize pictures I use the crop command to cut off the stuff I don't want in my pics too. It has an insert text option that I have never used

    Irfanview is good too, but this is the closest you can get to Photoshop (legally, anyway) without paying a dime.

    Thank you.

    Gunny, I don't think paint can resize photos....or if it can, I haven't figured it out.

    Goto Image > Attributes.

    I believe that can resize the image (or the canvas, not sure)

    When I tried that, it just cut most of the picture off instead of shrinking it.

    Microsoft Picture manager comes "free" with office. It can resize and crop. Most people have it. No text option tho'.

    GIMPshop was designed to make GIMP look as much like Photoshop as possible...
