I'll add pic when I have time.

Part 1:The trick is to use a good environment-map. It is important for a good effect to get different grays in the top right corner. I prefer using a <Image> Image -> Colors -> Auto-Stretch Contrast and a <Image> Filters -> Blur -> Gaussian Blur with a radius of 5 to get the full range of gray. Then select the "Golden"-Gradient in <Image> Dialogs -> Gradient Editor... and <Image> Filters -> Colors -> Gradient Map it to the image.

Part 2:The next step is to create a bumpmap for the text. Open a new grayscale image in the desired size, fill it black and paint the white text on it. To get a smooth transition do a Gaussian Blur on it.

Part 3:Then open a new RGB-Image with exactly the same size and start the Lighting-Plugin. Select the "Environment-map"- and "Bumpmap"-Toggles and select the images in the appropriate notebook-pages. I prefer a lower value in the "Maximum height" Bumpmap option. I think 0.02 is good in most cases.

Part 4: At the Bumpmap-Options you can select different between four different Curves for Bumpmapping. So you can select between a linear, spherical, logarithmic and a sinusoidal Bumpmap.

There is a much more flexible way to specify the surface of the Bumpmap. The Key is the <Image> Image -> Colors -> Curves-Dialog. Create the text and blur it with a wider radius. Then select the Curves-Dialog and modify the text-profile. A little Blur (Radius 2) makes the Bumpmap a little bit smoother. See the examples above.

I'll ask S3NSA if we should only allow user made tutorials.

Although we don't want this section to just be an archive of things you can google.

Regardless: this is still posting others work without giving credits or the source of tutorial.
