    RE: Chrome filter in GIMP

    No problems.
    1. From the toolbox select <Text Tool>
    2. Write a sample text in your picture.
    3. In the Font entry of the Text Tool write: Chrome (to select the chrome font)
    4. After that navigate to: Filters -> Alpha to Logo -> ...
    and select the chrome effect.

    It does not work with non-symbols, but you may 'cheat' the editor with any unicode character.
    Open a text editor and insert the UTF-8 symbol you wish, then select and copy it. Open GIMP -> Text Tool -> Font [Chrome]
    Left-Mouse-Click in the Text Editor Box and then press <Ctrl>+V
    Then Filters -> Alpha To Logo -> ....

    You can make a chrome circle for example with the copyright symbol and then delete the 'C' inside.
