Chrome colored border on an Image

Post by justme488 »

Hi. I have been searching for a way to put a 3x3 chrome color border on an image. I have searched, and found how to make elements in an image chrome, But not a chrome colored border (Unless i'm searching wrong keywords). I'm not an advanced user. I mostly use ImageMagick for resizing, and converting formats. Any help would be appreciated if this is possible.

Please post an example image of what you want to some free hosting service and put the URL here. Or identify the RGB values for chrome color. Also always identify your Imagemagick version and platform/OS when asking questions.

Chrome isn't a colour, but a metallic effect based on a 3D effect and lighting. See viewtopic.php?t=23904 and https://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/fonts/#metalic

Instead of starting from a rasterised text image, you could start from a hollow rectangle like a picture frame.

See my chrome script at my link below if you are using a Unix-based system.
