Pretty easy once I remembered to have a background behind the image. Thanks for the tip:)

I followed the tutorial step by step ( just added the extra layer, which I don't know if absolutely needed but it's how I got it to work for me).

If you only get white text you forgot to de-select the text layer - "un"-click the Eye in the Layer box for the Text layer.

I've modified the tutorial so that it's no longer a single image and have updated it to GIMP version 2.2.13

Looks good! Yep, you can find the bevel feature under: Script-FU > Decor > Add Bevel...

EDIT: I went back and added the Menu locations for the bevel and shadow options as well as a link to a reflection tutorial.

Thank You Fencepost, a very good tutorial. I run gimp windows 2.4 but your tut is ok for that release. I tried all three ways. They all work.
I did get stuck until I realised that it appeared that the fonts must be solid black. I found that a hollow fat font will not work for me as there was no black for transparancy. Can you please check that this is the case and not just me doing the wrong thing. Here is my attempt with a small bevel and I have mirrored the Font Layer prior to the "Alpha to Selection" step to keep continuity of the underlying picture. This may be nice in the case of a portrait if you can find a Big Fat Font to keep the face features flowing through the lettering. So this is only a mirror of outline ,NOT, content within outline. I can use a hollow font if I fill it it with black, but that makes it quite "fiddly" as the marching ants crowd the black outline of the hollow font.
Cheers Wbool63

Sweet. I like it. It's very easy, too. I put an outline around the letters to define them better. Here is my outcome:

I don't know if anybody said this already but you can mirror or flip your photo first, then do steps 2-6 (from the second version of this tutorial) and then flip it back before you do the paste (ctrl+v) part. Then, rather than deleting your background, you can just move the new layer to the position that you like.

(the secondary watermark was done using a grey color then choosing color to alpha [pick white for that] then using the Emboss tool and after that, I set the layer to something like, addition, then I used the drop shadow tool.) I have also lowered the opacity of the background image to make the text more visible.
