An updated Photoshop Gallery Wrap script that creates a mirrored or plain border to prepare it for printing and eventual wrapping.
Gallery Wraps are a popular way to display art. The process involves stretching the edges of the canvas over a wooden frame and enough extra canvas needs to exist around the image to wrap around the frame. In order to not lose parts of the image, the canvas needs to be extended all the way around the image. This can be either a solid colour or it can be mirrored from the image itself. This script creates a mirrored or solid color border.
A number of people have emailed me asking for additional features and this update includes most of them.
- Configurable wrap size (inches or cm)
- Configurable trim area around wrap extension
- Automatic mirroring of the image into wrap area
- Optional user defined logo on bottom or on all four sides
- Optional trim area bounding boxes and lines for canvas folding
- Leaves wrap area selected for further adjustments
