Which Tools Do I Use?
I got some files for business cards and fliers sent to me. All I need to do is change the text in some boxes. These files were created in Photoshop. After I change the text I need to save them in a format that I can bring to a printer and get them printed.

I have GIMP 2.8 running on Ubuntu 13.04. I extracted one file and then opened it with GIMP. I found the layers for each of the lines of text in the right hand box of the three boxes that open. I noticed that there was a dot on each layer. Hovering over it showed that it was a symbol showing that the frame was locked. I clicked to remove it.

There was a box with the sample words to the right of the layer symbol. I could change them in that box but they wouldn't change on the image. Obviously I'm not doing something right. What do I need to do to change the text in these boxes and on the image?

Thank you.
