When it comes to digital scrapbooking, it would be nice to be able to add some words into certain digital scrapbooking layouts.

You can increase each image by clicking on it so you can easily see all settings used
Add Titles or Captions to Images
First, prepare the layout or photo where you would want to add some text. The Digital Scrapbooking Megakit Child’s Play was used to create this layout.
Go to the “Tools” tab and click on “Text”. This tool, symbolized by an uppercase “A” can also be accessed from the left side of the GIMP window. Choosing the Text Tool will instantly create a new layer so you could edit the text without damaging the image.You can adjust the settings of your text at the right side panel. For changing the font style, simply click on the “Aa” button and the list will appear as a drop-down menu. To change the color of the text, click on the “Color” bar and a pop-up window would appear. This is where you could choose the exact color and shade that you want. Click OK when you are done choosing. Click and drag your pointer to create a text box. This will be accompanied by a Text editing toolbar so you could easily change the font style, size, as well as underline, italicize, or block your text.
You may now save your image and use it for your digital scrapbook.
