Open the image you would like to caption from within the Preview app located inside of your Applications folder. Go to the View menu and select "Show Edit Toolbar" or push Command-Shift-A to bring up the Edit Toolbar. Click on the text tool within the toolbar and then click on the photo to create your text. From there you can adjust the size, color, and position of the text.
