How to create a gallery wrap frame
Hi,
I want to put my picture in a frame. The frame should be such that the image is wrapped around the entire frame(including top, bottom, left and right side). In technical terms I believe it is called as 'gallery wrap'(Please bear with me Sad if I am wrong). You can find an example of this frame in this link 'http://photosoncanvasprinting.com/photos_on_canvas_printing'. Kindly please help me on the same.

RE: How to create a gallery wrap frame
You want the final picture wrapped around a physical frame? or you want your image with 3D look as if wrapped on a frame?

For the former, nothing special to do in Gimp, just compute your print image size as size of frame+twice the depth of the frame, cut 4 squares in the corners with the depth of the frame, and wrap the sides.

For the latter, "Filters/Map/Map to object" and "Box" type.

RE: How to create a gallery wrap frame
Hi @ofnuts, thanks for the reply. I want the final picture to look like wrapped around in a physical frame. Not sure how to implement the methods you have outlined. Tried looking for instructions, but could not find the right one in google search. Is it possible for you to outline what exactly(the kind of options I have to choose in GIMP to achieve this) I need to do in GIMP.

I want to create image that looks like the one in section 'Gallery Wrap' of 'http://photosoncanvasprinting.com/photos_on_canvas_printing'. As you can see, the image looks like has been embedded in the frame and shown at different angles(you can see 2 frame, each displayed at different angles).

RE: How to create a gallery wrap frame
I have too little time right now to give detailed instructions, but with the attached XCF you could be able to figure it out:

- Add an alpha channel if not there already
- Duplicate your picture layer twice
- On one layer, keep the center (box front)
- On another, the top strip
- On another, the side strip (strips have to be equal width)
- Use the Shear (Shear) and Scale(Scale) tools to change both strips to parallelograms
- To change the lighting on both sides: on each side layer, "Alpha to selection", then add new layer, then bucket fill with some light gray (#ccccccc). Set the lighting layer for top to "divide" (lighten), and the one foe the side to "multiply" (darken). Adjust effect with opacity sliders.

See attached XCF:
