(1) For adding text inside a .ps format file, you don't need to switch
from Unix platform to windows (for photoshop) in PC. You can use 'xfig' (a
freeware from ftp.x.org)


-Works fine with most Unix platforms (e.g. Linux Red-Hat).
-xfig can also convert .ps to .tiff (and many formats) for labeling.
-xfig is useful in preparing word processing documents using LaTeX.

Well, I am not advertising for xfig.. so, stopping here.

(2) ImageMagick is another good program. I think, most linux RedHat
versions has this program by default. However, for skipping the
installation troubles, use the binaries - available for various platforms.

Check these websites:


I am sure that there will be more suggestions from others.
