How do I create an image like this one
       

I want to create an image similar to the one attached.

I have a background image over which I have created another text layer. I want the text font to display the image while the surrounding areas should be white. Is there a way? I'm a beginner on GIMP btw.

RE: How do I create an image like this one
- Open the image you want at the bottom
- Layer>New layer (filled with white, or background color, or bucket-fill afterwards)
- Create the text using the text tool (Text)
- Layer>Transparency>Alpha to selection: this creates a selection shaped like your text ("marching ants")
- Hide the text layer (click the "eye" icon in the Layers list)
- Select the white layer
- Hit [delete]: you should have a text-shaped hole in the white layer, through which you see you original image.
