Figured it out; the text is appearing... but it's really, really freakin' small. Set it to 72pt text, zoom waaay in, and you'll see your text, granted that isn't a fix. The actual problem is that this pictures Pixels per inch is really low. It's set to 1, where as it's normally set to 72. In order to fix this, just use 'Select all', copy it, then hit File > New, Keep it's width/hight unchanged, but the option underneath it, Resolution, set that to 72, then paste. Now you should be able to do text in the image.
