Yay, I was hoping *someone* would comment... I'll probably write up a description of the technique for the loveblender next month.
The one you see below had the text generated via "print preview" in Word (the trick is to reduce the line spacing and use a big fat font) and then I brought that in as an image to paint shop pro and used the "magic wand" to select the white and put it over the photo. Later I refined the technique, using CSS in HTML to make the text, and using a Paint Shop Pro "Mask".

It's pretty easy in Photpshop 7: Load image in background. Add new layer, fill with white. Type text in another new layer. Rasterize layer. Select text outline by Select-All, then Cmd(or Ctrl) and an arrow key. With selection visible, click on white layer. Hit delete. Voila.

What kind of formatting tools does Photoshop have more blocks of text, pretty extensive? 'Cause shrinking the line spacing and getting a nice thick fat font (and sometimes aligning both sides works, sometimes not) is important
