First, I will say I am against changes to original images.

In Windows there are many apps to add text. PAINT and IRFANVIEW
both permit adding text.

PAINT (and maybe IRFANVIEW) will permit stretching the photo and add
text in the new area.

Irfanview will permit notes to the metadata which is not shown
on the photo.

Linux. EXIFTOOL a CLI that permits adding metadata.

NOTE: I do not change metadata except for orientation. I use an
index file of all photos to be displayed and BK for documentation
captured from computer screens. Documentation file names contain the name of
the subject. The index file lets me document a wedding photo with 20 people
per photo, and find it easily.

Do you mind sharing that app (and IOS or Windows or ?) that allows you to add labeling and comments at the bottom under the photo?  I have not heard of this and need it badly!!!!  Thanks for all of your comments!
