    David,

    Interesting you should ask this when I just scanned 96 pictures this morning
    and added text to each. To speed this process along I took the following
    steps. Of course these were all 4X6 prints from a photo lab so if you have
    digital images they will be a different size.

    This goes pretty quick once you get the routine down.

    First thing I did was open a new canvas and sized it 4.25"H X 6"W at 200
    dpi. Then added text in the bottom 1/4". (mine carried all the same
    text).
    Next I scanned images three at a time at 200dpi.
    With the 3 images in PSE I used rectangular selection tool to select the top
    picture
    Then Layer/New/Layer Via copy. (Immediately after this click on the
    background)
    Select the middle one and use rectangular selection tool to make a layer of
    this one and then the third.
    With the canvas visible on the left and the "LAYERS" palette of the scanned
    images on the right, Drag the top one (layer thumbnail) on to the canvas,
    make any adjustments, then save.
    (dragging the thumbnail is the best way to get the layer on to the canvas.
    Not only is it easier this way the drag and drop does not use the memory
    that copy paste does. That item thanks to Rich from a post here a few
    months ago)
    Then "UNDO" as many times as necessary until the canvas is blank again,
    except for the text layer, and then repeat the process for the second and
    then the third.



    I saved everything as Tiff files in a folder and had another empty folder
    ready for jpg's. When all done did a batch process and converted all the
    Tiff's to jpg and then burned both folders to a CD so that prints or
    alterations could be done with the Tiff's and the jpg's were for e mailing
    if needed.
