Do you have an image you’d like to have gallery stretched with custom colored borders or mirrored borders, but you are not quite sure how to size it for a gallery stretch? No problem! Follow the easy steps below and you’ll have that image hanging on your wall in no time.
In the example below we used the full version of Photoshop to accomplish this task; however, you can use any type of image editing software available to you.
The first thing you will need is to open your image and size it correctly. To get the gallery wrap to be as centered as possible on the front of the stretcher bars we suggest that you size your image to be exactly what you want to be seen on the face of the canvas. For canvas, we do not use fractional inches, but only full inches. In this example let’s say you want a 20”x16” finished size, so you need to size the image to be exactly 20"x16".
