Hi Sokhi,

You cannor script the text of a stored gif, as the gif- format do not store layers e.g. text layers within. If you store it in internal Gimp format and not in gif the next time you are able to alter the text if it was stored on a different layer, again. Jeff: Text can be changed in every pic, in worst case you have to delete the text or fuzzy select and delete, although it is different on a multi- color background to restore the background properly. So it is best to store the picture in two versions: one with layers (for further manipulation next time) and multiple e.g. views on the pic in jpg or gif format.

:) Juliet
