    Also - should the picture be our own, or can we take an existing picture and put a good caption on it?

    It has to be a photo of your crabs. If you have trouble inserting them here, I can help you. Email me the pic and I will post them.

    As for captions, I am not sure. I can ask a member who did one.

    Hello all well the program i use is called Photo Explosion but that one cost money so i did a search for you all and i tried a few free one and came up with this one. It seemed to work fine for me and was easy to use. Its called FxFoto I will post a link to a download page but you gotta scroll down to find it good luck.

    Freeware downloads Graphics and Photo - Image Editors at SnapFiles.com

    MS Paint can be used to make captions, and it comes free with all versions of Windows. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > Paint.

    It has a text tool with selectable font type and size, and some tools for making circle and oblong shapes to use as speech/thought bubbles if you want.

    For picture hosting, I recommend ImageShack® - Hosting as they are free (no signup required even) and allow you to direct link the images.

    Good luck all :)
