Other than the fact you are using Windows, the plugin should work. ;o)
I have used this effect before with Gimp and it works quite nicely, but
then I am on Linux too! :o) Have you tried just taking some text and
nothing else and applying the plugin? You could do that and then add
the text to the picture as another layer, if that works. I have always
just used the text I wanted for this plugin and that has worked for me.
One of the experts here may have another solution. I am not sure how
many Gimp/Windows users we have on the list, but I would think someone
has a solution, if mine doesn't work for you.
