Looking for this text effect

Not the drop shadow, the shining effect on the text?

Try this one: http://penguinpetes.com/b2evo/index.php?...tb=1&pb=1.

Otherwise got to the home page, and follow the link to the blog, then to the archives, in which the Graphics Tutorials section will have a link that works (hopefully).

I can't find where you are talking about. If you can maybe copy and paste the contents of the tutorial in a post here?

The tut is of course mostly images. And some tut authors would consider copying the tut elsewhere as a rip off .

If you Google for "penguinpete gimp metallic text" the link you get seems to work.

Metallic Text
You will be better off looking at this tutorial which is for Gimp
http://www.mahvin.com/?p=2360 it is the "Friday, April 15, 2011" post about half way down the page.

Otherwise, not as shiny but simple to use are some scripts

and
http://www.gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2851 look for the download link at the end of the first post.
