SO! this is how it is done, so please do follow the steps and directions carefully! >_<
Btw, after you open the image, make sure that its background is in TRANSPARENCY form and make sure that your LAYERS window appears.

Steps may seem long, but if you continue reading, it's really not that long.


Open the GIMP program


Now, click File>>>Open>>>(an image)


Type in a text, any solid color will be fine. Make sure it's the of text that you want.


THEN, click on the 'Select by color tool' and click on the text (to select the whole text)


Go to Filters>>>Light and Shadow>>>Drop Shadow (to get the shadow effect, optional)
A Drop Shadow dialog will appear, just leave it as it is, if not necessary, click 'OK'.


When done, you will get something like this:


After that, make sure that your BACKGROUND layer is selected in the LAYERS dialog (at this point, your text should still be selected with the little 'dashes' still there)


When your BACKGROUND layer is selected, go to Edit>>>Copy
Then, go ahead and click your TEXT layer and go to Edit>>>Paste


Then, you will notice that you've gained a new layer called "Floating Selection (pasted layer)"
If you've noticed, you should click on the 'eye' in the LAYERS dialog to make the BACKGROUND layer 'out of sight' and you should have the following:



FINALLY, click on File>>>Save As (a 'save image' box will appear, but click on file extensions and choose .PNG please)
After you click on 'Save', another box will appear asking you to confirm and 'export file', so just select 'Export' there.
A 'Save as PNG' box will appear and just click SAVE




VIOLA! CONGRATULATIONS!!! YOU WON! JKJKJK LOL LOOOOOOOKKKKKK!!!!


THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH FOR YOUR PATIENCE. THIS IS MY FIRST TUTORIAL EVER, SO I'M SORRY IF IT'S NOT THAT GOOD!
