Hi! I am trying to curve text around an open path. I made the circle, typed the text, clicked on the text, held the shift key down and clicked on the circle, went to TEXT - and the Fit to Path line was grey and not accessible.
I have been trying this for hours and can't get the "Fit text to Path" line to be accessible or to get the notebook page for that to open. What am I doing wrong????

After you have your legal size image ready then go to file > Open > the_file_you need.jpg Gimp will open it in another window.
just hold CTRL down then press A while still holding CTRL to select All the image then hold CTRL down then press C to Copy it Go back to your blank page and hold CTRL down then press V to Paste it. This step is weird but necessary, in the Layers panel it will have a new layer called "floating selection" or similar. just right click on it and select new layer... the copied image will be pasted into the new one as a new layer (so you can edit it independently)
To resize it, look at the tools (on the left) panel and select the Scale tool (hover your mouse over each tool to see what it is called). once you have it selected then click anywhere on the image you wish to resize. then it will go into Scale mode where you can "grab" the corners with the mouse and stretch it to your liking. if you wish to keep the Aspect ratio (so it dosn't look stretched and warped) hold CTRL and SHIFT at the same time whist resizing.
And finally the Text!
Click on the A (text tool) in the tools panel. Click and drag your mouse on the image to create a "text box" (the actual text you type is in a separate little box, but you can edit the color, font, size, etc.. later by clicking the A (text tool) and then clicking on the solid part of a text layer.)
1. Open the big picture in Photoshop
2. Choose the Ellipse Marquee Selection Tool.
3. Hold shift and click and drag to make a perfect circle above the picture.
4. Press Control+J to create a new layer from the selected area.
Or...Are you trying to shrink a big picture so that it becomes small enough to fit within a small circle? If so, let me know.
Text wrap in Photoshop takes place inside the 'text box' which you can create by selecting the text tool (the big letter T in your control panel palette on the left) and then left-clicking and dragging to define the size and shape. Holding the Shift key while dragging will constrain the box to being a square, and holding the Alt key while dragging will draw the shape from the center.
Select the type object (the Select tool must be used, not the type tool); then from the menu, choose: "Type," then, "Create Outlines." The text will become an object, with multiple lines and curves, fully editable, by each point or line.
Check the CD and see if there are any files in it with either of the following extensions: .diz .nfo If you find any file with these extensions, do the following: Select the file, hold the 'Shift' key, and simultaneously right-click on the file. You will get a drop-down menu with the option 'Open with...'. Select this option, and a 'Open with' window will appear, listing all the possible programs you can open this file with. Select a program like 'Notepad' or 'WinWord' and click 'Ok' button. The selected word-processing program will open the file, and you will most likely find a block of text containing the serialnumber/installation code.
make sure your fonts are loaded correctly and turned on.Try it with a open type font and see if this fixes the problem. Open type fonts are the new font type to use. try www.dafont.com and enjoy. as for the creating a proper print file without text reflow and a open type doesnot fix the problem. Your rip for the proofer might need the font loaded locally for proofing. or when you send make sure the option to send fonts for each page selected.
