Curving an Image


New Member
This is either so simple or so stupid that I can't find it...:(

I have a bumper sticker sized image that I created in Corel (all vectors). I am toying with the idea of digitally printing it and placing it on the visor of a car racing helmet.

But, in order for it to work correctly, it need to have a curve to it when printed. I approximated this angle with curved text, but need a way to curve this entire image to that curve.

Any ideas? Or is this even possible?

Arial Sucks.
Corel's envelope function is not very accurate when it comes to manipulating complex objects. Often the distortion effect will have inconsistent results for various objects in the envelope.

I think IllustratorCS2 does a better job in this respect, although some of its results still leave a bit to be desired. However, at least the results are consistent for a complex warp.

I appreciate the Illustrator help guys, but note the fact that I'm using Corel. :):):) Just kidding....I appreciate any help.

The envelope function that VectorDoctor suggested gave me enough info to figure it out, so thank you very much.
