Setup for Canvas Media

Canvas type media is a board too but with some specific parameters. You’d want to show your customers the thickness of the stretcher and how canvas is wrapped over it. Probably, you’d like to set mirroring of the part of the image if canvas is not fully covered by the customer’s uploaded image. If you add additional bar to the bigger size stretches, you can set from which size this bar has to appear on the preview.
You’d  want to create a proper 3D presentation of your print on canvas, you need to pay a bit more attention compare to other boards because canvas is real art and it’s important to show the final product as close as possible to what your customers will receive.

Take a look at the working example.
