Need to remove text in Gimp (brainfart in progress)
I've been using gimp for a while but it escapes me how I removed text or anything else from an image.
I know it's a common thing in photoshop and I sort of did it once in gimp but I'm baffled how I did it now.
I remember I took part of a picture and used it to merge over the text I wanted to remove (this being the date my digital camera put on the pic) but now I've forgotten how.
Any help would be great, thanks all.
ps. a link to a site or a good in depth book recommendation would be fine too.
