Gimp Tutorial - Metallic Text

Filed under

I figured the old chrome-text tutorial over at the Gimp User Group site could use both an update and an enhancement of technique. Mine is done on Gimp version 2.2.13.

How to make metallic text:

2. Apply a heavy Guassian blur. About 16.0 The purpose of this is to give the text some rounded corners and smooth edges.
