I need to scan hundreds of pictures onto a CD for distribution to my family.
That is not a problem. The problem comes in labeling (tagging?) them so that
when a mouse is hovered over the picture, a description (who's who) pops up
in a box. I see this all the time on web sites. What can I do (use) to
re-create this feature.

And you probably need a thumbnail photo pointing to a full photo.

The easiest way would probably be to use the same HTML you'd use on a
website. One doesn't need to be online to use HTML, it can be run natively
on a computer. You need an HTML editor. Dreamweaver would certainly be
overkill, but there's a number of smaller shareware HTML editors that you
can use. Do a Google search for "html editor". If you're completely new to
hypertext markup language, then you need a friend to help you out.
The XHTML code to do this on some browsers is:
title="Hover tooltip text here"
'title' does the magic. Just fix src="..." with a valid path to an image
It works with firefox 2, have not tried it with IE or Opera. If it fails for

Thank you for your advise, I'll let you know how it turns out
