Hi

I am new to GIMP and just joined the Forums. I notice I messed up the time during registration. GMP +/- went over my head.
\
I am a 72 year old DIY auto& truck mechanic and I wanted to learn GIMP so I could help others with common auto repairs. I am just getting starting and I was thinking of doing printed and maybe Youtube material using GIMP. I have 2.8 installed on my Win 10 64 bit desktop.

Frankly, the GIMP learning curve is tough for me. I wanted to print out an 81/2" x 11" Giimp image in portrait style with a jpg image on the top half of the image and create my own text on the bottom half. Spent hours and still can't figure out how to combine a jpg shot of the engine jpg on top and text in the lower half of the image. If anyone can give me the basic steps, would appreciate it. When I put in a jpg, it seems to automatically start another image separate from the text layer content. How do I get Jpg and text combined onto one image?

Thanks in advance for any help. Im getting callouses on my forehead.

Steve

I'm sorry but as it says in the forum announcements, this forum has been DEAD for a long time.

The spammers keep trying to take over.

Save yourself from them and go to https://www.gimp-forum.net instead

Hi Group Smile
My name is Jo. I live just outside Dallas Texas. I've used Gimp for a while, but just for simple little things. I love to learn to use it for more complex editing and design.
Have a great day.
