Object name on full screen view

Question

I've been using Backyard EOS to do EAA for public consumption/streaming purposes at our local astronomy club. While I know this isn't the best target software for this, it has worked out very very well, with one small thing that would make it better. 

After centering an object, and getting the exposure/etc correct, I flip to a full screen view. I wish it would show the entered target name somewhere on the full screen view, so folks have an idea what their looking at.

You can do this with a number of Image Viewers or Image Editors (everything from Microsoft Paint to Adobe Photoshop).

My favorite for a POWERFUL but EASY and FREE program that really blurs the line between Image Viewer and Image Editor is IRFANVIEW (https://www.irfanview.com/)

You simply OPEN the Image File (or setup to Watch a "Hot Folder" to display Most Recent Image), then Drag a Rectangle where you want your Text, and use the Insert Text dialog.

This will allow you to continue with BYE/BYN Image Capture in the Background whilst engaging with the Public in the Foreground.
