Open up a new image in PSP.
Click the ‘Text’ tool in the menu, and change the settings at the top of your screen to these (but any font and size):
Choose the ‘fill’ and ‘stroke’ colours in your colour palette. The fill should be a shade of grey, and the outline should be a darker shade or black.
Now click anywhere on your image, and the text box should appear. Type whatever you want and press â€˜Applyâ€™. To position it on your image, simply drag it across (click, hold and drag anywhere within the floating dotted lines).

Press ‘Ctrl’ on your keyboard and hold the key down whilst you press ‘D’ to deselect your image. Then save! You donâ€™t have to use the settings I used – experiment! Hereâ€™s my finished result:
