Create metal text with a variety of user controlled options, including metal finish, brightness, tint color, 3D depth.

Add your own background with control over fills, patterns, colors and gradients.This script also includes the option to keep individual layers.
as well as using a technique Draconian pointed out in his “Crinkled Tinfoil” tutorial.

  1. The only font that seems to be available is Jasmine UPC Bold- is it possible to select other fonts? If not that would be a welcomed option.

  2. I was mistaken- the selection opened in a separate window I missed. Thank You.

  3. Hi Graechan, I love your script! It was working fine until I had to re-install Gimp-now I am getting the error messages:
    “GIMP Message
    Plug-in ‘Metal-Alpha’ left image undo in inconsistent state, closing open and undoo groups.” and
    “Metal Alpha Meaaage
    Error while executing script-fu-metal-alpha-to-logo:

    Error: ( : 1) Procedure execution of gimp-layer-resize-to-image-size failed on invalid input arguments: Procedure ‘gimp-layer-resize-to-image-size’ has been called with an invalid ID for argument ‘layer’. Most likely a plug-in is trying to work on a layer that doesn’t exist any longer.”

    Any suggestions??

    Thanks in advance 🙂

  4. Getting same error as above. Gimp 2.8 fresh install.

  5. Oh it is with the alpha not the text use. Working on a selected shape.

  6. please could you provide the exact steps required to duplicate the problem.
    either here or at the support link
