Update to GIMP Tut: Text along Path

Thanks to Jo Ann (Nanascraps), who advised she was always getting a black filled layer, there was a missing piece to my tut. It dawned on me today that step 6 was missing the select Path to Selection piece of info. Sorry everyone, I'm doing my steps in auto pilot mode. So will update the tut in the next post too so that all is in order (hopefully). Remember all comments welcome.

GIMP Tut: Text along Path

It is finally here, a tutorial on how to create text along a path.

Lets start and hopefully I won't loose you.
Note: Click the image to enlarge and see more detail.

Now these steps should also work for any other shape you come across, let me know how you get on.

It's hard to believe

But this baby girl will soon be a new Mummy herself, all going well sometime late September that is. This is Laura, she's the youngest and I am the eldest of 3 girls. Was visiting my Mum last night for her birthday when we were looking through some photos of Laura trying to find her in baby outfits as Mum has still got a few of her baby clothes saved. She nolonger has this cute wee little green outfit, but the 3 that Mum has saved are now 35 years old! And still look fantastic even my Colin wore them over 13 years ago too. How fantastic that Laura's own will soon be wearing them next.

Lets toast with Bubbles

I hope everyone had a nice Easter, we spend ours at home and had an early birthday lunch for Mum. My sister & brother in-law came over for the long weekend from Melbourne too. It will be the last of her travels back for a while as she's 14 weeks pregnant. Yes, how exciting - I am going to be an Aunty! My Mum too is thrilled, she sure enjoyed her shopping spree with Laura who is looking great.
