The program can place unlimited number of text, image and rectangular captions onto captured images. Text captions are providing some information on captured image, and / or data - time stamp. The image and rectangular captions allow you to decorate captured image.

The caption position can be specified in pixels or you can choose from the list of predefined positions like Top-Left, Top-Center etc. In this case the caption will stay at this position regardless of the image size.
