InDesign would probably be best if there is a lot of text.

If you're just looking for a line or two, you could do it in Photoshop.

It depends... will these be for online use or for print?

  • If online, you might consider Spark Post. It's a free app that you can download with an Adobe ID and you can use it on smart phones, tablets or desktop.
  • If in print as in sheetfed printing for a book for example you might want to layout your images and text using InDesign.
  • If it's a printed photograph (printed by you or a professional lab) you might want to add the text in Photoshop
  • If it's for a poster you might find Illustrator or Photoshop to be the right tool.

Please provide more details on how you will use the images.

On Adobe Portfolio/Behance web sites, I use Captions -- real HTML text which can be indexed, searched and translated.   Text added to actual image files is rarely a good choice on the web except for watermarks or branding.

Not sure what you're doing or which Adobe software / service you're using so it's impossible to offer more than guesses.
