Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Not at all sure what your wanting to do exactly or accomplish

You can add text to the image with numerous photo editing programs including windows paint,
Of course you can't remove the text afterwards

Other editing programs like Free GIMP/ PaintNet/.. as long as you save the project file you a can edit the content you add.

I would suggest using a photo editing program and not notepad :)

Editing the image code using a text editing software often times renders the image unviewable. I would take ThrashZone's suggestion if it were me :)
