I have been using Photoshop for many years. Now use Photoshop CC. I have also used Perfect Resize for many years. Photoshop now has a resize feature that is often better than Perfect resize. However, Photoshop does not allow me to add gallery wrap or other features to my resized image where as Perfect resize does allow such features. I would use Photoshop resize more often if these additional features were available. Adobe should consider adding these features to Photoshop's resize app.

Making it part of Image Size might be confusing (and many people already get confused in that dialog), but what if something were added explicitly for gallery wraps? Maybe something similar to Canvas Size (or perhaps in Canvas Size)?

Thankyou for your prompt response. My thoughts from a photographer/artist users perspective. That maybe a practical solution. I personally don't find it confusing but you probably have more insight to that issue that I. The probablem I see is that many people might find it confusing if the options are incorporated in Canvas Size. For example I have to explain the concept of canvas size vs. image size to most all of my clients. Adding gallery wrap to Canvas Size would only complicate matters worse in my experience. But when resizing an image the concept of canvas size vs image size does not rear its ugly head. Canvas size in the latter context simply translates to canvas media printed to allow wrapping the media on the stretcher frame. Having the gallery wrap option with the image resize option avoids the confusion of canvas size vs image size.

You could write an action to extend the canvas for a specific wrap size fairly easily. For more flexible wrap sizes, it would probably need to be a javascript.

We'll have to talk to our XD folks about where they think the options or command would create the least confusion for our users.

Have you tried Alien Skin's free gallery wrap panel? https://support.alienskin.com/hc/en-u...

There are quite a few actions and scripts out there to prep an image for this (doing a simple Google search): https://www.google.com/search?client=...
