Gimp - Script-Fu


I'm trying to use GIMP to replace Adobe Photoshop. One thing I'm having trouble with is adding Fonts to the image I am trying to edit.

I wan't to add the 3d and different effect fonts into an image using the Script-Fu stuff. Whenever I create a new piece of text, it creates it in a new window, meaning I have to sit and carefully cut out and paste in the text into the image I am editing.

Am I just doing this wrong? I'm sure there would have to be an easier way?

Hope someone might be able to tell me I'm stupid and looking in the wrong place.

Thanks : )

Just use the text tool, and click where you want to add the text.

That doesn't allow you to add Script-Fu text to your image though. That is just normal text isn't it?
