Depends on what you are doing with it.


Fast Stone might work if its bulk pics with the same letter or logos.


I use Paint.net 


You might find Gimp easy to use

Picasa is capable of doing lettering. I use it for that often.

I would suggest mspaint (already on your machine at C:\Windows\System32\mspaint.exe ) for doing it simply and quickly in a basic way and GIMP for doing more advanced editing and using more complex text effects (shadowing, glow, lens flares, 3d style text). it is alos possible you could go create a powerpoint document, import the image, make some word art text, position it, group it with the picture then copy this group and paste into mspaint, this SHOULD work (that copying out stage might require a slightly trickier process but likely shouldn't) and would give an intermediate level of difficulty and visual effectiveness between the simple and easy mspaint and the trickier but very powerful GIMP. GIMP is free, mspaint is on every windows computer, powerpoint you probably already have.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
