You don't really say what you want to accomplish with your Internet site. Essentially, ALL sites have text and images and images with captions...

For example, you can create a free web site on www.wordpress.com and it is relatively simple to create hierarchical static pages - you don't have to use it as a blog.

Have a a look here: http://paulsauvephoto.wordpress.com/home/

>how to place text on appropriate image.

That can be done through your image software or you can make a background image and place html over it.
