Cropping a Picture to regular pentagon
I'd like to take my rectangular photo image and crop it to a pentagon shape prior to printing. This must be a regular pentagon, each side equal length (variable) and each internal angle 108 degrees (strictly).

Is there a way to do this in GIMP simply?

Thanks

RE: Cropping a Picture to regular pentagon
Hmm. This might work but here are the issues:
1. I did download the shape path script 0.91 not the 0.7 before posting the question here.
2. It installed to my GIMP app. as a drop down menu item called: Script-FU between Filters and Windows.
3. Shape Paths does show up in that menu and “polygons” is a possible selection there.
4. I can enter a Center X value and a radius and 5 as number of sides and leave ‘stroke path’ and ‘fill path’ unchecked and click OK.
5. And it’s true, nothing happens.
6. “open the Path list and make it visible” . I don’t see a menu item called “path list” . That’s where I stalled out.
7. Any suggestions?

In case this helps anyone else I went around and around making paths and having nothing show up. Then I figured out the numbers entered in the polygon shape are in pixels not inches. Thanks for the polygon script!
