    Hi 123John,

    Are you looking to add colored text?

    Let's see if this will help:
    • Open Irfan view and insert the image
    • Click on Edit button
    • Choose Insert text...
    • Look for and choose Font
    • Choose your color and click OK to insert the text into the image


    Let us know if that helps. If not, please provide which version of Irfan view you have installed to provide more precise instructions. One of the other members who are more familiar with the software might have the answer, too, so please stay tuned.

    Donna posted a simple and good solution
    ==========================
    Below is info on using text/adding text in Ifranview

    Often the cause is background color/contrast or transparency

    Here is a tutorial on text use in Ifran

    Hi.
    No, I am not looking for any coloured text. I am just looking for how to do a coloured background in a selection.
    Lets say, I do a selection,Žand I want to "highlight" this selection by giving it another coloured "background"

    If you want a colored background for your text, un-check Text is transparent, and click the Set background color button.

    I want to "highlight" a line in the attached image by having a line coloured, it should be transparent, so the text should be visible and readable.
    Hope, my explanation makes sence, thanks.
    Best regards, John

    Ahhh. I see! Try this John:

    • Draw a rectangle around what you would like to highlight.
    • Click on Image in the menu bar.
    • Click on Effects and choose Sepia (unfortunately that is the only color that is offered for highlighting purposes)


    Finished result:

    Thanks, DonnaB.
    For the time being, problem solved.
    Could be great, if there were more colours to choose.
    But still.
    Thanks to you, problem is solved.
    Best regards, John

    You're welcome John.

    Yeah? Why Sepia??? I thought yellow was the universal color to use for highlighting!

    Yes.
    Yellow would be preferable.
    Sepia is almost not visible.
    Best regards, John
