Is this a homework assignment? All the instructions are already in the document.

You can find the shapes mentioned in the instructions on the Insert ribbon > Shapes. You can add text to any shape.

So, click the Insert ribbon, click the Shapes dropdown, select a shape and draw it on top of the image. Then format the shape to your liking with background, transparency and border colors. Right click the shape and select Add Text to add text inside a shape.

If you want to add text outside of a shape, insert a text box.

Does that help?

cheers, teylyn

The reason that this site tries not to provide answers to' homework' is that we would then subvert the learning process, where, as a student, you are required to apply some reasoning and thought processes to the answer.

If your question is set to you as an exercise, in whatever capacity (homework or a similar function), then getting an answer from us is unlikely to help you to understand the essentials of the problem.
