Thank you Gidde and Jax. Its nice to be doing something again.( ah my poor challenge entries..)
As you can see I have started to label the streets and alleys. I have tried and tried to get my text to follow a path both in Inkscape and GIMP. I follow the directions about making my path and then my text but I can't for the life of me either select both (In Inkscape) or know what the next step after I get the transparent text along the path. (In GIMP) Help Please..
