How do I wrap an image around a circle?

Postby Dreyas » Mon Mar 17, 2008 1:54 pm

Hey folks,

I have an image (500x100) (a few measures of music) that I want to shape into a complete circle, much like the plethora of tutorials talk about with text around a circle. However, I've been completely lost as to how to actually do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much!
Peace,
Drew

Hey David,

Actually, I found what I needed to do... The Filters > Distorts > Polar Coordinates is precisely what I need.... now I just need to adjust the originals so as not to blur them too much. Thanks for your help, though!

Peace,
Drew
