Curving text around image at the right angle/proportion?
Hi there,

So I've extracted the Sons Of Anarchy Logo into a transparent background, and removed the original words so I can put my own in there.

I've read how you're supposed to put curve around a path. However. I want to curve the new words I'm using with the custom font around the Sons Of Anarchy Logo, like in the original but with my text obviously, at the right angle.

What's the best/easiest way to do this?

Also can I do it by bending/arcing straight text I have already written? That would seem logically the easiest way to do this, but I don't know how. Unless the only way is doing an ellipse select then putting the text around this?

Ofnuts has a script for text along a path which is one way.

edit: somewhere in here http://gimp-path-tools.sourceforge.net/t...along-path

Another way using standard Gimp functions.

A demo here

edit again: Do believe that the curve bend filter will work for your logo Wink
