We need to warp an image so it can be printed and wrapped around a cup that is somewhat cone shaped, larger diameter at the top than the bottom.

In Image Magick, they have a distort arc command that allows you to enter the degrees and optionally a couple other values (top and bottom radius).

Is there a commnad like this in Graphics Mill?

I see there is a bezier curve transform that we can set the 16 points to achieve this, but that does require math to figure out the points, plus I don't know how extensible that is.

Hi Todd,

You can use Photoshop Smart Object to generate a mug preview. it will prepopulate properties of the BezierTransform based on a distortion of Smart Object.

Please check this sample:

Yeah, we were not looking to warp an image to make a preview of what it looks like to wrapping around part of a cylinder, We need to warp an image so it wraps completely around a cup that tapers from the top to bottom (the top of the mug has a larger circumference than the bottom does).

Hi Todd,

You can apply various transformations using the SmartObject transform tool including the cone one. Just use the Custom warp mode.
