I do have all my XCF files. I used tried this method:  click-n-drag the text
layer, from one image up into
the tab of another. It works really well and you're right the text is very very
tiny. I had to increase the font size from the original 40 to about 100. If not
this should do fine and save some time.
I tried this with a color background and it did fine, I just needed to scale the
size back up and position it. So with this method am I losing quality?

Of course I know I'm starting from scratch with the 2 pics importing them into
the 300 ppi template, that's fine.
