On this page, the first section glmps our ever growing? Generate isolated parts of a picture and combine them with a random background. Use the text tool to add some text.
You will get a new text layer which you can also see tutorail you look at the layers dialog. You can use the move tool to move the text where you like to have it. Then merge it with the white layer below by choosing Merge Down from the Layer menu. You should now have one layer with black text on white background.

Make sure you check the Keep Transparency option the little box next to the layer mode and then fill that duplicated layer with black.
You can paint over the text with a paint tool or simply drag a black color from the color selector and drop it over the image. You do not have to be himps Now make sure you uncheck the button again and move the layer some pixels to the right and downwards. You can move it with the Move tool while pressing Shift so that it moves the current layer instead of picking a new one. Then blur your layer and adjust the transparency with the slider so the background will shine through: An updated version of this tutorial can be found here:
