For the rest, difficult to tell what to do and how to do it without having a look at the logo. Some are simple, some are not.

If you check the attachment. Iwant to add remove the bottom words and add additional words to it. I also was to clean it up. How can i do this in gimp
Based on the below pics. I want to remove Errol Lyn Karate-Do and Put something else. I would also want to "fix" the pic. It was a scanned JGP.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

Actually, given that the text font is quite plain, and that the logo is nothing more that pile up of circles (well, ellipses for the top two), it's better and quite easy to redo it from scratch (see attachment)

However, if this is a logo, it would be better to use a vector graphics editor (Gimp is a bitmap editor), so that you can later resize the logo at will. The equivalent of Gimp for Vector graphics is called InkScape. Redoing the logo fram scatch with InkScape wouldn't be much more difficult than with Gimp (might even be easier).
Ok...thanks for your help. One more thing, whats the difference between a vector graphics and bitmap graphics?
I understand everything he wrote above but if you are a really new beginner just go to Youtube and put in the search line vector vs bitmap graphics

Vector graphics is making an instruction sheet for a brush (a sequence of "go from there to there using that color..." commands). If you have a bigger wall, no problem, just multiply all the distances in the program to adjust, and you have a bigger image, just as clean.


This may have been posted a *long* time ago, but I just read it.
I wanted to complement you on a really good explanation in simple, clear English!
