I have been scanning old family pictures into my computer.  It was so easy with Picasa to place text with names on the picture.  is there a comparable program where I can do it before or after I download them to google photos?

You can still use Picasa. Just add the names – and save – before uploading to Google Photos.

OR, you can use Snapseed after the photos are in Google Photos. Snapseed is an app for your phone. Here’s a video snippet from What Does This Button Do –
