Image Quality Degradation Issue

I have been using GIMP for a long time, but I'm no expert. I just use it for resizing, removing things from images, adding text, etc. I know about the layers, but I've never really gotten into that and that probably has something to do with the issue that I'm having.

I have an image that I want to add text to:

[Image: 169hy0x.png]

This is what it looks like after adding text:

[Image: 33osdpx.png]

Could someone tell me how to add the text and keep the quality of the image? It looked so much better before. Thank you all of your time!

RE: Image Quality Degradation Issue
UPDATE: It printed the way I saw it in the image viewer (as I talked about below), so I'll still need to be able to edit it and keep the quality. Thank you, again, for your time.

Okay, so it looks to have perfect quality on the forum, hopefully it prints that way. I guess this can be disregarded. It looks terrible when I view it in my image viewer, but the original looks great. Sorry to waste your time!
