This question is a crosspost from Stack Overflow because of its predominantly graphical nature and the fact that I think that a primarily graphically oriented community may [be able to] provide advice and insight that the community that frequent Stack Overflow may not be aware of or experienced with/in. Having said this, if Stack Overflow remains the most topically correct place to discuss this, please do say so.
How would I go about creating the same type of effect Safari uses for its Top Sites view?
I would highly prefer a method that does not require I start a GUI. I don't mind if I need to compose the images together into a single canvas first - I can can just prepend that onto my command.
I found a related, but not entirely helpful, similar post (although it's where I got the screenshot from :P): openglES - give a curved effect to a wall of pictures
