Question about GIMP GNU Image Manipulation Program
Howdy, here's my 4c worth.
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.)
Hope this rambling was of some use.
