Earlier this week you posted somewhere (email, FB,???) that there was some way to add text in Photos using an imbedded app of some kind. I can’t find that item. I recall it said open a photo and click the 3 dots and an option would be edit with what ever that app was. I don’t see that option in Photos with the 3 dots. Thanks!

Quoted from Chris in the email:

(then use the 3-dot menu to “Edit in Snapseed.” As you can see in the examples above, there are a lot of options on the text tool. When I’m done, it takes me back to Google Photos. If I’m using an Android device, I need to be sure the Snapseed device folder is being uploaded – on an iPhone/iPad that is not necessary.)

Here is the link Steve:

Ohhhhhhhhhh….you have to download Snapseed first (in Droid). I’m dense. Thanks all. Love the weekly programs even if I never am around when they are live.

I’m thinking, I’m thinking. My mind is on the great show on dictation that I just listened to. Never knew you could do that. Thanks!
