Text to path help
I have spent countless hours this past week and have yet to be successful, I have watched you tube videos and had some success, but it's not perfect and I need closer to perfect.

Please help Smile

Its a logo for my family reunion t-shirts. I need LIFETIME MEMBER in white YAHOO font along the bottom.

I would be eternally grateful and pay it forward Smile

Thanks,
Kelly

Wasn't sure which orientation you wanted so I did both, so you can choose what you want.
I used Text Along Path to achieve the result.

Makes it easy , doesn't it? I think this is one good example of the shortcomings of the regular text-along-path....

Certainly true for Gimp 2.6 but the Gimp 2.8 text tool is very flexible when it comes to mixing fonts, sizes, spacing.

RE: Text to path help
Yes, as long as you want everything on the left of your path, and don't care about distorted letters in sharp curves (and even in not-so-sharp ones).

OTOH when you are mixing fonts, styles, and sizes, you won't get a good result unless you position everything by hand (kerning isn't defined between characters of different sizes/fonts) so the script (or even the original text-along-path function) is of dubious help anyway.
