Labels allow you to create a layer of text and markings over top of an image.
Labels are only viewable when in the image enhancement view.
Begin by making your image full screen. You can do so by double clicking the image. Once in full screen mode, you should see 'Labels' at the top.
Undo/Redo are available for use with labels.

- 'Dynamic Edges' will automatically adjust the layers edges to most closely fit the layer.
