gimp text
 
In gimp, when I add text to a picture, the box cannot be moved around? say that it doesnt look right and I want to move it to the right, I cant just simply move it? I have to delete the text and start over until Its aligned just the way I want it? Is this possible, do I just not know how to do it?

In GIMP it's all about selections ...
I'd suggest you put your text on a separate layer,
and only anchor the selection once you've decided
where it looks good :}

Which version of GIMP are you using, btw?


Cheers,
Tink

if you make sure you put your cursor directly on one of the letters(rather than the text 'box') and click/hold you should be able to move the text about without using layers.
