I use Windows Photo Gallery that comes free installed on your computer.  It's great for cropping, enhancing color, contrast, brightness, etc.  Couldn't be easier.  I use Paint to put text on the photos, something that Photo Gallery doesn't do.  You may also have free Microsoft Photos on your computer, which has most of the same features.

I use Photoshop. But on my iPhone, I use Snapseed. I read about it in a NAR magazine of all places, or maybe it was CAR. Anyway, it's a great app for tweaking on the fly before posting to social media.

I am not exactly what you mean by embed the text, as in if you are wanting to embed meta data into a graphic image or picture, or if you were just wanting to "glue" the text over a picture where it will become one image...

If you are looking to embed meta data to an image, I would suggest going with Adobe Illustrator as apposed to Photoshop or Lightroom, but that will take a little bit more know-how than just "gluing" text to an image.

If you are just looking to attach the text to the image, place whichever text you would like through the text option and then under the "Layer" tab (4th menu tab from the left at the top) select merge layers (bottom of the drop down menu) and that will do the trick.  

If there is anything specific you have a question about, please just send me a message and I will be happy to help.
