Need software to imprint filename on photos

I need a program to run perhaps 100 photographs against that will superimpose the filename of the particular jpg ONTO the front ot the photo. So, when I send a heap of photos to Wagreens, Walmart or similar I can easily identify the filename. I'm looking for something that is EASY and reasonably priced such as Irfanview. LOVE Irfanvies but it does not have that feature. Can anyone suggest a utility to do this for me?

Why does IrfanView not have this feature?

File > Batch conversion > Use Advanced > Advanced > Add overlay text > Settings
In the Settings text window, add "$F" as text and format as you like.

Shouldn't this do what you are trying to do?

Need-a-Clue,

I'm not sure why you think Irfanview doesn't have that feature. It DOES! :)

Go to Batch Conversion, and click the checkbox for "Use Advanced Options". Then click on the "Set Advanced Options" button just below that. Look for the Miscellaneous section in the menu that pops up, and check the box for "Add overlay Text." You can now specify the text you want and where it should appear, $F is the symbol to use to have the file name be the overlay text.

Cheers,
LHerrou

Need-a-Clue,

I gave the exact same answer as LHerrou, and I even posted it earlier. Would you care to explain why you chose his comment over mine?
Splitting points would have been a fair solution.

It's true, torimar beat me by half a minute (perhaps because I took the time to type out clearer instructions), if you want to split, it's fine with me.

Dear torimar, MY SINCERE AND HONEST APOLOGIES! It was/is TRULY an error on MY part. The only way I think it might have happened is that the answer came SO fast that I incorrectly assumed it was ONE single reply. When I clicked on the site link I then saw only the bottom response. The response of the othe expert and thought it was the ONLY response. I always try to be as fair as possilbe and certainly failed horribly this time. I would have split the points 50-50 or 60-40 minimum. Please tell me how I can send you a private email through this site. I have a solution. Please accept my appologies. You both did a SUPER job and saved me a lot of time.
