    I am looking for a program, hopefully a simple one, that will let me
    write notes directly on top of a photo so the notes display when I
    view the photo.

    Any suggestions out there?

    Irfan view will let you add text and it is free.

    Download it from

    Open your picture, place the mouse where you would like the text to be, hold
    down the left button and draw a text box. The click on edit and type.

    Any image-editing program will do this: Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.

  4. Almost any photo editing program will let you do this. Of course, your
    notes become a part of the image, if they are 'written' directly on top of
    the photo. With Graphic Converter, you can type your notes onto the image
    and have them becomea part of it, or you can add margins to the image and
    type your notes into that area. The margins can be cropped before printing
    so that they don't mar the image. Or you can set Graphic Converter so that
    a Comments window opens with every image. The Comments window is
    separate. You can type comments into it without having to have your notes
    appear on the image or in the margins.

  5. Any page layout program can do it. I use MS Publisher. I put the comments
    in a text box that I attach to the photo, so it doesn't block any of the

    Try Photoshop

    Photoshop Elements is a LOT cheaper and can do the same thing. (Notes directly
    on the Photo.)
