    Picture manager is NOT a picture editing program that will allow you to do
    what you want to do.

    If you want to add words to or around a picture you can do so in other
    Office programs and do a SaveAs (with a new name) as an image file
    (PowerPoint is the easiest to do this in my opinion.)

    Or, you can download and install a true image editing program that can place
    text on a picture. Around is another story however. Many here recommend
    the free software package irfanview that can be Googled for and downloaded
    from a reputable site. http://www.irfanview.com/

    Publisher would be ideal for that task.
