Text along a circle


There are several ways how to put text on a curved path.




One is using the build in Gimp feature of 'Text along path'.
For a description look here: Gimp Manual



An alternative is ofnuts' excellent 'Text-Along-Path' python plug-in, 
which has a ton more options.

You can find the description here: Plug-in Manual

and download it here: Download

on Windows, put it in your:
C → User → gimp-2.8 → plug-ins folder

  

Another good way of putting text on a path is using Inkscape.
You can edit and scale the text a lot easier than in Gimp !

PhotoAdvanced2 on Youtube has a good tutorial on that topic:


and this one, by VscorpianC is even better:
