The Gimp file format allows images with added captions to be saved without being flattened and then the text can be altered easily at a later date
I have something to add to the advice about adding a caption to an image in the Gimp photo editor. If you save the image using the Gimp file format it is possible to then revisit the image at a later time to edit the caption.
Once you have followed the instructions in the hint to add the caption (but before you save the image in the JPEG format) press Ctrl and S together to save the document. Give it a name and use the file extension .xcf. Click on Save. This time there will be no warnings about flattening the image.
If you look at the Layers toolbox you will see two entries, one for the image and one for the text. If you want to be able to share the image with people who don’t have Gimp (though there’s no reason for them not to as it is free), save the image as a Photoshop file with the extension ‘.psd’ to keep layers intact.
