This page should be locked as the first thread of the home page. It has always been a bone of contention ,threads can become totally useless.  :o Old people :-\
I will ask Stefan to pin it.

I use OpenShot, and make annotations and titles both solid background and transparent background, for it using mtPaint. OpenShot is very versatile and has lots of options and is pretty easy to use. It even does key-frame animations, and can make stop-motion videos from a directory full of numbered still images. The only drawback is that it sometimes crashes on my system, so I have developed the habit of clicking the "save" icon after every change I make in the video I'm editing. I use it to make all my videos. The output file size can be large, especially in HD formats (there are many output formats to choose from) so I generally do another stage of transcoding on the OpenShot output, with WinFF.

Sounds good to me.   I notice that it's for Linux.  Hopefully I can get it to work on Ubuntu 14 on my Lab PC.   I have Winslows7 and Ubuntu 14 on it, but that's the one I had to re-do and I still haven't redone the bootloader so that I can boot into Linux.

As for this laptop, I have 500GB of movies and such that I'm currently transferring over to another 1TB external so I can have space for Linux.  Then I will finally get to use all the good stuff on a worthy OS.   

Thanks for the recommendations!

I downloaded Paint.Net on another computer I have that has been running slow lately - specially on Adobe Photoshop.
In Paint.Net you can add layers so you can edit parts of an image, also delete objects without affecting the content on the other layers.
It is for free, and I find it quite functional. Many other functions in it too.
You can save your multi layer image as a JPEG by "Flattening" the image first (Merging the layers into one background layer - which is not longer a layer...).

Doesn't GIMP do all of that as well?   I have it installed but haven't really bothered to learn it since I haven't needed to do any real photo editing yet.   I've mostly been using Irfanview for resizing and such since it's easier and all in one window.
Once I run into something where I need to actually do some photo editing, I'll keep Paint.NET in mind and check out the reviews and features compared to GIMP.

I have no experience with GIMP, but I might give it an eyeball.
I have used Paint.Net because (even if it is 0.0001% of the capability of Photoshop) there are somewhat similar ways to add, merge and edit layers. It also have "advanced" level and color balance features. Helps a lot to lighten dark images - not on expense of dark and bright parts in the image, but only lighten midtones. Like the two images attached.

A person's screen resolution has a lot to do with it.  The resolution on my screen is 1920 x 1080 (16:9).  An image that fits nicely on my screen may not fit nicely on a screen that is using 800 x 600.  Most websites don't have this problem because they properly scale the page and images to fit the screen.  You can either raise the screen resolution for your monitor if it's not already at it's highest resolution and increase the font size, or you can use the zoom in/out functions in your web browser by pressing the Ctrl and minus/plus keys.  The web browser also allows you to adjust the font size.  What I'm saying is, one person may say the image is too small and at a resolution that is hard to make out the finer details, and another person may say the image is too big.  So re-sizing your image before posting isn't always the best solution.  IMO, this issue would be best resolved by Stephan.
