Hey there, I purchased a few Tee shirt designs from an online store and I have decided that I wanted to edit the text before printing them.
The designs were handed to me in a PSD and PNG format
Using GIMP i was able to open the PSD file and I am able to see the layers.

In that particular case, I am trying to edit the text "INTO WEBSITES" (see screenshots below) I have left clicked on the layer, on the Text itself etc... I can't seem to find the option to EDIT the text (keeping the same size, font and colors)

Am I missing it or is there no way to EDIT an already existing text with GIMP?
thanks for your help, a couple of screenshot to show you what I see

I am a noob here so I can't embed images but you can pull the gallery with the u'r'l below

You can't. Gimp reads PSD text layers as rendered bitmaps and discards the text information.

PSD is an Ad*be proprietary image format. Gimp can do some basic conversion but lots of PS features are missing. That includes text layers.

The ones you have are no longer text but are now raster (bitmap) layers, the same as the base drawing.

What you can do is, replicate those layers using Gimp text. No need to delete the existing PS layer, just toggle the visibility icon to hide.

The snag with your template comes if you need to match the PS font. The 'I TURN COFFEE' font is a commercial font. I think Equinox see: https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/itc/equinox/
