How could I make a curvilinear perspective with Gimp? I've found out making a linear perspective, but not curvilinear.

My guess was that there were any way to move the single points in the grid, and not just the endpoints.

Sorry, I'm not an expert in perspective, bur it seems difficult to me change it in a 2D space (see here). There is a related question on stackoverflow – Paolo Gibellini Nov 9 '13 at 12:35
@PaoloGibellini - Thanks for the links. I don't know yet how to create a Script-Fu, but I'll try. – Manolo Nov 9 '13 at 12:39

I've found a tool in Gimp 2.8 (transform grid), that has helped me to do what I wanted. Look at this example:



Tool button:


Create grid:

Transform grid:

In this way, you could achieve giving perspective to linear images.
