    Placing a company logo on a sphere

    Level 7
      Hi all,
      I did a website for a company a couple of years ago and they now want me
      to put their logo on an image of a golf ball so it appears that the golf
      ball really has the logo on it. Obviously just placing the logo on top
      of the ball image doesn't look realistic. Both images are gif images.
      Can any point out a tutorial explaining how to do this or give me some tips?

      Thanks in advance!

      David

                Would the fish eye command enable the logo to distort sufficiently to make
                it appear it bends with the roundness of the ball ?

                  I believe it would. But I only have the logo available as a bitmap and
                  to use the fisheye command I would somehow have to convert it to paths
                  and I don't know of a way to do that.
