How I put an image around a circle? Answered

Hello! Well, my problem is this:
I have done an ambigram (loop, in this case) and I don't know how to put it around a circle, as in this picture:

Have you any idea how to do it? and what program should I use?
Thanks!

for Photoshop - make a new square image - import the art you want to go around the circle and makes sure it spans the entire width of the image - go to Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates - play around with the height of the art on the image for different distortion effects

hi,
u can arc an image by using illustrator.
hilight the image, then OBJECT, ENVELOPE DISTORT, MAKE WITH WARP, u can choose the percentage with preview! default is at 50%.
hope this helps!

GIMP would be a better software for this and it is free to use and have. It comes with most Linux distros. You might find a windows install of Gimp. try google search for it

Use a structured draw program, like Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape (which is free...)

In Inkscape:

1) create a circle.
2) create a line of text.
3) select both.
4) Select on Menu: "Text" -> "Put on Path"
5) Adjust the text size and font until you like the effect.

(I left the circle gray, so you could see it...)

Yes, but I want to do is put a picture, not a text, and that is what I don't know how to do =S (in the image of the link, what is around the circle is not plain text, is a repeated image)
Anyway, thank you for the program to download!

Try using GIMP or Photoshop. I know GIMP can do it and I think Photoshop has a style for that.
