    I just started with Gimp 2.0 and would like to learn how to bend text
    around an object like a circle or along a curved line. I was asked to
    engrave a knife blade with a name inside a curved banner.Couldn't do
    this free-hand to save my life. I searched for tutorials and other
    info, but could not find. Could someone point me in the right
    direction? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
