GIMP, keeping my objects on common layers

Posted 31 March 2013 - 11:31 AM

I'm trying to learn some more of gimp. I want to have a row of four names (text) on one layer.

I made all the names, but each name ended up on it's own layer. I don't want this!

What I have is my background layer, place order layer(text) and then the names layer(text)

three layers, not 6.

I can save this image as a *.png and us it as is, but I feel the need to learn how to move or assign objects from layer to layer so that I can do it right.

Thanks

Edit: I can't upload this type of file to DIC??? --fine--

Here is an example of my work:
red-yel-grn-blu.xcf -right click, save as

Hi

You just need to use merge visible layers for
Your names.

Do you know of a video tutorial that shows how to do that?

All I'm finding is how to blend two images...

Thanks
