Irregular border and text flow
Hi,

I would like to know whether it is possible to create an image with GIMP that is not rectangular.

What I want to achieve is to have an irregularly shaped image (e.g. a map of Japan) on a website with the text flow adapting to the shape of the image.

All that I have been able to find thus far is how to make the background transparent. The problem is that the image frame, although invisible, is still rectangular...

It'd be much appreciated iof anyone can point me in the right direction. And, naturally, if my problem description is unclear, I'd be happy to (try to) clarify Smile

Thanks
Ace

Unfortunately not... but as far as I know this is always how things work. Image parts always have a rectangular outline, those that don't look rectangular are just defining transparent edges.

Thanks ofnuts. Not the answer I was hoping for, but such is life Smile
