 Anyimage can be read in the same way that a piece of text can. Anaudience decodes, or makes sense, of the meanings contained in a picture to understand its intended meaningHowever the same picture could have several differentmeanings for different people. Animagethat can beinterpreted in more than one way is said to be
polysemic 
(fromPoly= manySeme= meaning)
By adding text to animageit is possible to ensure thateverybody understands it in the same way. This process iscalled
anchorage
 It works in the same way that an anchor holds an objectsteady - in this case the preferred meaning of a pictureLook at these examples
Is it possible to understandthem just by looking at the content?
or could they have more than one meaning?Look at how the meaning of eachimagecan be changed bysimply adding some text in the form of a captionNow, most people read it in the same way - the meaning is
anchored
