It sounds as if you are scanning straight to a jpg file. I'd suggest
creating a bmp file from the scan then edit in the text as required (in
Photoshop this will create layers I believe) & convert to jpg when
Contents of the text would presumably be the same as would appear on a
collection label, plus the species name if this is normally separate.
