I’ve had a few people ask me how I get text on my pictures or draw on them so I thought I’d create a tutorial on how I go about doing it.

You can use any type of editing software you like but this tutorial will be for GIMP.
I chose GIMP when I first started blogging simply because it’s free. I originally had photoshop (a REALLY old version) but when we switched to our MAC I had to get something else because the software didn’t work.  I also would like to state for the record that I am not, in any shape or form, technologically savvy.  I’m sure there are a multitude of ways to do this but this is how I figured it out.  
Here we go!
First, if you don’t have GIMP, go get it!  Click HERE….I’ll wait….

Got it?  Awesome!
Now, open up the image you’d like to add your text to.
Now click on the “A” icon.  This is your text tool.  Select an area and start typing. You can move the text anywhere on the image and there are many options to edit your actual text.
Want to add more somewhere else?  Just click somewhere else on the image and create another box.
Now for the arrows.  You’ll want to create a new layer otherwise you’ll only be able to draw in the last text box you created.  
Now select the paintbrush icon.  You can change the color too if you like. 
“Free hand” drawing took me some practice and I still have to undo A LOT.  Just keep trying and undoing until the arrow looks right to you.  
Save and you’re done!
If you try this tutorial for your pics, let me know how it works for you!
