Hello all. Noob here, with a question. I've used GIMP just enough to humiliate 
myself at my lack of knowledge, and am trying to get a handle on the whole 
image manipulation thing.

For a first project, I'm trying to make a wallpaper for my phone. My idea 
involves neon text (from the tutorial on this page 
http://www.gimpusers.com/tutorials/neon-glow-text) on top of a logo I've found 
in a jpg, both of those over a starry night sky.

The text is no problem. The tutorial referenced above was easy to use and 
understand. I thought I could apply the same steps to the black-and-white image 
here http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb261/HHMACHSHOP/THEBOLT.jpg
but it didn't work.

I suppose the problem is that I'm starting with two different things, i.e. 
starting from scratch with the text vs trying to manipulate a jpg. I've tried 
experimenting along the way, but it's hard to experiment when I'm not sure what 
I'm doing in the first place. I'm sure what I'm trying is possible, but I'm not 
sure how to go about it.

Any ideas or suggestions? Tia.
