Pretty good results from the size image you had to work with, Tin. I think the initial photo is a bit too small to get really great results, purely from the LE filter's emapping. You can certainly get interesting "effects" with photos, patterns or gradient emaps, as already demonstrated by members in this thread. The emaps just needs to be big. :hehe

Here's an example of a pattern fill used as an emap. I made the emap 4x the size of the text layer.

Image

Another of a wood grain pattern @ 4x the size of the target text layer. Bump map Gauss blur 15, Sinusoidal curve, Height .02 - Distance .547 - Material Shiny at .54.

Image

From my testing, gradients should be 3x-4x the height of the target text/object layer for smoother results. The width of the gradient doesn't seem to matter much. Here is my result of an emap of a horizon style gradient at 30x800.

Here's my try at it. I colorized the red env map to cyan for a teal effect.

Nice work. It looks good, O!

You're right, in that once you create an emap you like, you can change the color before you begin. If possible, I prefer to hue shift the emap, rather than to use the colorize filter. Of course, you can always hue shift/color balance after the emapping too.

another try (apply Lighting effects to the right layer this time like mentioned in tutorial)
I also tried changing the hue (as Tux has mentioned about the hue) to make it stand out a little more.

Very pretty results, Ella Louise. I love all the colors. You do have to be careful the overlay chosen doesn't overpower the highlights and color scattering you get from environment mapping. You're on the edge, but the environment mapping still comes though nicely on your result.

Using the lighting filter on your background added depth and shine to the texture, which made your text pop.


I’m experimenting the different possibilities of Gimp. That’s why I appreciate a more experienced eye to comment my results. Although sometimes I don’t understand exactly what you (someone) mean :oops:
The language, the terminology, lack of skill … Still there is something I learn from it.
Thanks GnuTux :bigthup

Very different and nice outcomes here :gimp

Nice depth on the BG, Molly. Looks like more than .01 depth.

Is that emapped text? It doesn't look like it.

Thanks Tux, No it isn't emapped, I was just trying to make my background shiny and it still isn't as shiny as yours.

That is looking pretty good, Marcello. :bigthup

I see a few jagged highlights, which can happen with some fonts & some emaps. You can try adjusting your bumpmap depth in the lightng filter to a lower depth value. The default is 0.10 but I like to start at 0.01 and move up from there.

Beautiful shade of blue Marcello, just a few of adjustments in the lighting filter as Tux mentioned and it will be gorgeous.
