    Oops, I didn't realise they had included a definition of 'sanguine' as: Cheerfully optimistic, hopeful, or confident. I included a very sad, lonely looking girl in a red dress.

    Hey skyfish, go to your 'lab' and you can select one or many photos to edit. The text boxes should be on the left hand side of your screen. The 'lab' button is under the coloured navigation bar at the top of the page.
