How to put different sizes or fonts on the same image

In the example, lines of text are different in font, size, and color. Create them using two separate text Drop Zones, there are options using an external editor as well.  

The first option would be to open a specific image in an external editor (using the pencil icon in the image toolbar) and add the text there. Then save and update the image.

The other option would be to create a text box and save it as a .jpg, then bring that image file in and place it on the page.
