Captioning JPEG photo files

I would like to add white space with a caption at the bottom of scanned photos and make this caption part of the JPEG file. Is there any way to do this with Photoshop Elements? I don't want to add text directly on the photo image.

If you want to have a caption for just printing, right click a photo in Oganizer, select Add Caption and then check the caption box when printing.

If you want the caption to be visible when viewing the image: Open the image, use Image>Resize>Canvas and add say 1/2 inch to the bottom. You can place your text here. You may want to save one copy without the caption just in case you want to do something else with the picture in the future.

Hello and welcome to the Forums, willbrian!

Open your image in the Editor (Windows) or in Photoshop Elements (Mac). Click on Image / Resize / Canvas size, then click on the up arrow symbol, put a check in the relative, then add a number in the height. Finally, pick a colour (at the bottom of the dialog box), this colour will be what the area above your image will be.

That's the resizing part.

Next, use the Text tool to create what ever text you want.

That's it! Hope this helps!

An alternate way is to have your back ground set to white. Select everything with the crop tool. Now take the bottom of the crop tool and pull it out to cover amount that you want to have white under you photograph. Click accept and Presto you will have a bottom white boarder. Of course you can do this for other boarders not just the bottom.
