Lightweight portable image annotation software sought.

I am looking for software (preferrably a portable app) which will allow me to embed an image or images into a file and allow me to add text to that file both above and below the image. I am not looking to edit the image. Word does the job perfectly well, but I don't have it on all of the computers which I switch between - annoyingly I switch machines a lot, but they are all windows machines. I would prefer not to use Open Office either and would prefer the software to be as light as possible. I would like to keep these files on my usb drive and keep the software application on there too if possible. This would allow me to plug in whenever I have a few spare minutes and acess to a computer.

I am preparing for an exam and have a number of images each of which is a sample question for the exam. I would like to store each of these images embedded in its own file/document and make notes on them as I work through them. I don't need to be able to format the text or as I say edit the image in any way. Just make notes above or below the file. Thanks in advance.
p.s. I have been Googling Portable Image Annotation Software which lead me to Portable Digital Notebook 1.2.28
which looked promising but is ultimately targetted at Biologists and when installed does not fit the bill - the images are too small and the interface far too complex!
