Resizing a circular graphic into a square one

Recommended Posts


Is it possible to resize a portion of an image into another shape? For example, I currently have a globe image, which is nice and circular as globes tend to be. Only problem is I actually want this globe to be square in shape. However, I don't simply want to cut out the middle of the globe for a square or a lot of the world is going to go missing ;) So I need to somehow stretch the rounded corners into a square shape.

Can anyone suggest how I can do this using paint.net? The only thing that I've found which even remotely resembles this kind of functionality is the Bulge tool which isn't accurate enough. Unfortunately the type of graphics I draw are normally fairly simple in nature so I haven't the foggiest how to do this kind of resizing/distorting.

Any advice would be appreciated!
