I have been trying to create curved text on a path on an imported jpeg image? using GIMP. Because of conflicting info on the internet about this, I have come to rentacoder to pay for professional help. I'm new to GIMP, about 6 weeks. So I have been opening image? to be worked on, then create a curved path using Bezier, so I can do this part. I then click on the A text tool in toolbox and type in text in GIMP editor in black, knowing I can change the color later. I make sure the text box and resulting pinkish outline? is above the [url removed, login to view] text is satisfactory I click text along path, then I delete the original text put into the text editor, so by now the text is curved along the path with this pinkish fuzzy color. It is after this there is conflicting info, so I'm in the dark now. After this I need very specific help and no way vague with some images to guide me. I am hoping somebody can explain this to me in a thorough manner. Thanks Guys. Janice
I must impress that the instructions given to me do work. I'm? in no way? new to computers but am new to graphic design. I would? want to try the instructions before I pay for them. I'm fed up going to forums to ask about thes steps when many people either leave out some in between steps or become impatient when a user tries to clarify the info they give. Thanks guys and if you can help and charge a reasonable fee I'll be back for more.
