Caption Pictures in Paint

When I am trying to caption pictures in Paint (adding text to the image) I
make sure that in View under Zoom it is in Normal Size but sometimes the
text size comes very small. How can I make sure that I am choosing the
correct font size so that it is readable?

Thank you

The font would have to be proportionate
to the image size. This is easier to accomplish
if you use a program that allows the full image
to be displayed on screen without scrolling.

Possibly the freeware IrfanView would be
useful to you:

Download IrfanView 3.97
http://www.tucows.com/preview/194967.html
(get the plug-ins too)

There's also a new version of Paint with many
advanced features but it requires
..NET Framework 1.1
