can someone help me to edit a photo , please?
I need some help editiing the text on a logo. I was trying to use the vector program on inkscape , as described in an opeshot video editing tutorial , then I realized I couldn't do it because it was a jpg file.

I was hoping I could get some help , pointiing out the right way to do it.

hey , thanks for the quick reply.

I know I had to post the logo, just that I had to quickly shut down the computer when I was making the post. I was expecting a cab , and wouldn't you know it , shows up right when I start posting the message here.

Here's the photo I'm talking about.

   

I wanted to make the text so Jamaica reads like you'd normally read it, and I need to make the W and the K from water network to be at 9 O' clock and 3 O'clock respectively.

as far as re-creating the logo from scratch. It's for a friend of mine that's been using the logo for a while , so he doesn't really want to change it. Aside from what I mentioned.

Someone was going to do it for him , but he was going to charge him , so I suggested I could try to get some help in doing it since he's on kind of a tight budget.

It is a standard font - Arial Bold Black. Also something of a pita since the text is on an ellipse.

Recreating the upper text to follow a suitable path is no problem, but this throws the bottom text off. Recreate that and it clashes with the small text right at the bottom.

Probably better to re-do the whole thing. Gimp or Inkscape not much difference.

edit: I know what you mean. The orientation of the text depends on direction of the path.

attached the file so you can see how it is built-up.

I would think it's not that hard if you know what to do. But if you don't explain it , then I'm still in the dark.

hey ,

that's awesome. Exactly what I wanted.
Does your video explain in detail how you did that?
I would still like to know how/ what you did. It's the ol "give a man a fish , feed him for a day" proverb. I'd like to learn how to fish, lol.

Thanks again , though.

Idea
*Make sure to watch the tutorial video Rich linked to you in that post on how its done. He goes over how to add text to the bottom curve(around 4min 30 seconds) somewhere in the middle of the video.
