You should just be able to open the pic, select the text tool, click on the photo where you want the text and add it. You can then select the text and choose a font and a size that suits you.

If it's anything like Photoshop, once you have that layer, you can copy it to other files so you don't have to keep redoing it each time. You could also copy it to a blank file and save it and then go in and copy it whenever you need it and paste it onto any photo.

And if you get too frustrated with Gimp (as I often have), try picmonkey.com. It definitely doesn't give you the unlimited possibilities that Gimp does, but it does basic stuff easily.

Gimp is like photoshop, but there is a bit of a learning curve in figuring out where everything is. You can just use the text tool (it looks like an A), click on the photo, type your text, select your font and colour, increase/decrease the size of the font to what you want... then click on the little 4-way arrow tool to reposition the text where you want it.
