One Gimp plugin to warp a path locally (inside a given
circle). To get it, do:
- At the bottom of this page there is the Download button. Clicking it
you get one .ZIP file. Unzip it and put the python file it contains in
your Gimp's plug-ins folder and restart Gimp.
- This registers in your Gimp the plugin
- To find the plugin in Gimp, go to the Paths tab and right-click the
path you are going to warp. This opens a pop-up window. At the bottom
follow the link Tools > Warping > ... .
The plugin has three modes of action: Grow, Shrink, and
Swirl (counter-clockwise or clockwise). The circle where the warping is
done is input as a 2-anchors path either as a diameter or the center and
one point. Some explanations and pictures appear at www.gimp-forum.net
