RE: Center text at the middle of image
There's a couple ways to do this, I recommend autocroping the text layer (text must be in it's own layer, and the text laye) by going to Layer/Autocrop Layer.

Then grab your alignment tool by pressing "Q". Now go into your tools options and change relative to "Active Layer" and make sure the text layer is selected and click on the text. Now back in the tools options of the alignment tool click the "align center of target" and "align middle of target" icons and your text should be centered.

The other way to do this is right clicking your text layer, and selecting "Alpha To Selection" and then press CTRL+C or go to Edit/Copy to copy the text. Then press SHIFT+CTRL+A or go to Select/None to deselect the selection, and make a new layer, and make sure you can see the whole document and then paste it in as without anything being selected and you pasting the copied image on a full view of the document. It'll automatically be centered.

Hope I helped.
