I'm not an expert Gimp user so maybe I'm just not looking in the right place
for this. I've been Googling for hours and finally gave up.
I need to shape an image to follow a path or curve. Since I can't do it, I'm
not sure how I can show you what I mean, but imagine the palm branch that flows
around the edge of a medal. I have a long slender image of a braid (3/4" x
10") I need to shape like that around a 5" circle. Polar Coordinates seems to
be the place to start but it creates a huge curve and I can't see how to force
it any smaller. This is much like making text follow a curve or path, but I
need my image to follow the path. I've thought about converting the image to a
really big font symbol so I could manage it like a text character but I've not
figured out how to go about that.
This is evidently something others have sought and no one has found a solution
for yet. Is there none?
