I use MS PowerPoint when I need to quickly edit a photo, such as adding a
text box or an arrow. I guess you can create multiple slides for
different graphic files and reuse the text box/arrow.
My usual steps are
1. New slide (blank)
2 Insert the graphic file, add text box, shapes (Insert - Shapes).
3 Select all objects (crl + click OR crl + a ) -> group all the objects,
your graphic, text, arrow (right click -> Group)
4 right click the grouped object (three objects should be selected
together) -> Save as a Picture

> Yes, Ctrl + Z works sometimes but not all the time.

> Can you open 4-5 MS Paint windows at a time?
> I always have to close Paint and then re-open to work on another graphic.
> Have others found a free graphics program that's more forgiving then MS
> GIMP is way more than what;s needed often and not easy to learn and master.
> I haven't had time to play around with 3D Paint as I'm learning on the fly
> as I migrate from station to station throughout the day.
> Thank you.
