On instructables photos, how does one add the rectangles that show text on a mouse over? Answered

On many instructables photos, there are one or more rectangles embedded in the image. When mousing over the rectangle, text appears that explains that part of the overall image. How can I create this effect on my images?

I have only made 2 instructables and i was puzzled by that also.. I didnt see anyplace to make the BOXES untill i submitted my instructable, then I EDITED it again... and I just clicked the mouse on the picture and DRAGGED it to where-ever i wanted the box... then another little box appearw where you just TYPE IN YOUR TEXT THAT YOU WANT TO APPEAR.... thats all there is to it.

Just hold down and drag your cursor on the picture, and a box will appear. After that you'll be able to add text or edit the size and position of the box. Then click save, and you're done.
