How to ad a ' glass dome' on top of an image ?
Hello all,

I'm new to this forum, and as every newbie, I do have a question...

I'm working with the GIMP for few months and everything goes fine,
except for one thing..
I'm trying to make these Glass domed images, as seen at the second
picture.

I would like to know if I can make such picture using GIMP.
A round image with on top a glass alike dome.
I'm selling collage sheets online, and showing my images in this
manner would be great.
The following image with the bird has a drop shadow, nice effect, but not what I want. I would like to transform it into a glass domed image. (image with a glass dome on top)

And here's an example of the result I saw online, it's made with a photo-editor, but I have no idea how....Must be something simple, but I can't find a filter or any tutorial for it. (the metal pendant frame around the image is not what i want)

Hopefully there's someone willing to help with this,
as I can not find it by myself.

Thanks in advance.

Gerrit-Jan

Some of those effects are quite complicated, I can see the reflected window type of highlight for example.

To get you started, not a tutorial, just a few pointers in a video.

when I checked to see that the video uploaded, plenty more referenced in the youtube sidebar.
