Scaling (reducing) image with fonts
Hi,

I'm relatively new to GIMP but I know my way around the basics.

I have a layered image containing some raster images and some text which I want to reduce in size for print.

If I use the Scale Image command the text gets corrupted as it is scaled as a raster rather than reducing the font size. When I select it with the text tool I get a pop-up as shown in the attachment below.

If I scale the layers individually and reduce the font sizes accordingly to get rid of the text corruption the layout of everything moves around so I cannot mantain the exact image I want.

How can I reduce the size of the image but ensure that rather than a raster resize of the text it reduces the font size by the correct amount? This way I should avoid the corruption and maintain my layout.

Thanks!
