When you are on the page to edit your Instructable, you select an image from your library and click "add". A larger image will now be displayed below the text input box. To get the yellow tag, you simply drag your mouse anywhere in the larger image. You will then see a white box appear, in which you enter your text.

I tried this, but once I entered the text, I couldn't figure out how to save it and exit the text box!

There should be a save tab.  Unless you are using the Chrome browser?

I spent about two days trying to figure this out. I finally hit on it by chance. It was my last result and it worked for me. Hahaha.
