you can't put text on photos in iphoto, but i figured out how to do it in appleworks. you do it in a draw document, and then you save it as a .jpeg. then you can move it back to iphoto. here's what i did. pretty complicated stuff, huh? i'm thinking for ellie's birth announcements i will just have a great photo of her with some text entered on the photo. i can order 4x6s from iphoto for $.19 each. that's like $23 (that includes shipping) for 100 photos. that's about the budget i'm working with. only problem is whether there's an envelope size that fits a 4x6 photo. i hate baggy envelopes. i ordered one of these from iphoto just now to be sure the quality is good when i move it from iphoto to appleworks and back again. we'll see. anyway. i know. i'm being very productive tonight. this is high priority stuff.
