Radial bending in Gimp!
Hi folks
New to the forum!
I`m a woodturner and have made a wooden bowl and plan to transfer a border pattern to it.
I want to be able to convert a rectangular piece of a design maybe in .jpg or .gif format to a curved image to fit the outer top surface of the bowl. Someone very kindly told me about a tutorial in sketchup which could do this but unfortunately it requires various `pro` versions of software to do so and I wondered if I could do this (I believe its called `Radial bending`) in Gimp?. The attachment shows a bowl I made before but this border pattern was formed by using an already printed and shaped pattern that was 1/8th the circumference and copied 8 times round the edge.
Many thanks
Steve
