Hi Charles ~
I tend to use https://pixlr.com/, which is what DropBox sends you to when you want to edit an image. (Though, of late, I tend to just edit in Procreate on my iPad, not free, but not expensive and highly versatile.)
As someone else mentioned, you can do a lot of this simple editing in PPT or Google Slides, too.

My esteemed listmates,
Often we're called upon to edit graphics or photos which don't require Photoshop.
We just need to create a Text box in the image and/or insert arrows.
I've been making do with MS Paint but it's easy to slip your finger on a Text box in Paint and then you often have to start all over.
Yes, Ctrl + Z works sometimes but not all the time.
Also, once you have one MS Paint window open I haven't seen how you can open other graphics to work on other files.
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 Paint?
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.
