This is an update on the "metallic" logo project.
@kremmen has not been online for quite some while now and until anything else is announced one must assume that he has left the project. @Armagedon_55 has made two updates and as I understands it he is willing to take over the project of making regularly updates. My hope is that @kremmen will PM @Armagedon_55 and sort of "hand over" the project to him and share his experience with him or perhaps work with him. I will help out by making logos in the request tread and I hope @ducc will help by checking for errors and mistakes.
But we need help to keep this project running.
1) all request go in the "request tread" (no PM for personal requests)
2) always add name and UID to requests
3) take the time and effort to find the best and biggest source (better source = better metallic logo)
4) if fantasy or not in fm database please write that.
It is my personal hope that we at some point can make a request system as they have for the "cut out" project. Perhaps @Rob and @mons someday can help us with that.
kremmen leaving the project has in my opinion also shown how vulnerable the project is when left to one person. So we need more people to get involved in the making of metallic logo's instead of just having a lot of people requesting (of course the great interest in requesting is still appreciated )
So how to make Metallic logo's:
1) there is a old tread on that here: https://sortitoutsi.net/forums/topic/11367/photoshop-tutorial-for-metallic-logos
2) first you need to learn how "cut out" the logo (there is a lot of videos out there on that subject) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAJ38UAHQzo
3) then you need to get hold of "eye candy 5 impact" or "eye candy 7" and install it in to your copy of photoshop.
4) then you need the "action" file provided by kremmen in the earlier post: https://sortitoutsi.net/forums/topic/11367/photoshop-tutorial-for-metallic-logos
5) then you need to learn how to use action files : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZC2qHx_Tdh8
So first you cut out the logo and make the canvas size square and center the logo (if you have experience with photoshop you can enhance and improve on the logo if needed).
Then you run the metallic action and that is it .
last @Rob how did kremmen get the updated logo in to the search tool?
There is any action for Photoshop with Eye Candy 7 ???
No unfortunately not.... I'm not an expert on photoshop, but I think "eye candy 5 impact" only work on cs6 or older version of photoshop ( https://www.alienskin.com/about/press/alien-skin-software-announces-eye-candy-5-impact/ ) and you need "eye candy 7" if you have a newer version of photoshop. If anyone knows otherwise please let me know. So if anyone with experience with photoshop can make a action with "eye candy 7" that would be great. you can get a trial version here: https://www.alienskin.com/eyecandy/
Perhaps @ducc can help?
I have actually never done Metallic logos or even used Eye Candy before, but I could try to edit the action. I downloaded the trial version of Eye Candy 7, which is probably needed since I have a relatively recent iteration of Photoshop. Within Eye Candy, there is a filter that results in an effect that looks quite a bit like the Metallic logos, but there are a number of sliders for different adjustments. If it is possible, maybe you could take a screenshot of their positions when creating the Metallic effect with the Eye Candy version you have, so it can be reproduced more easily?
If nothing else will work, it is also possible to legally download Photoshop CS2 directly from Adobe. At least if you are a little bit naughty and claim (by ticking a box) to have originally purchased the product...

So, I've given this a go. Here are a couple of my results. I dunno if these are good or not? (Just a few pics I have taken from the request thread)
I think they look very good. we need more people that are able to produce Metallic logos and that can and will do request. If you want to do many logos at the time read about (google) how to "batch" in photoshop.
hopefully we are at some point going to have a new request system, but for now you can contribute in two ways... either by answering requests as you already did or by collecting request and sending them to @Armagedon_55 who are making the new updates.
Just a suggestion, but could we get a system like they have with the cut out faces? Wherein people upload requests and we can accept the request so that it means only one person makes a logo instead of multiple people doing the same one because we didn't know someone else had already done it?
It is a possibility that in the future we could have exactly that.... but it is up to @Rob to make it and it takes time and effort.... but great idea, that we are already working on
If that becomes a possibility, IMO it would be useful to unify requests for metallic and "standard" logos (at least as an option for updated/not in megapack logos), as it would be less work for one person to do the cutting/resizing for the standard logo and apply the effect for metallic logo than having separate people do each logo.
That's more like it, cheers. Aye, I gave that thread a go this morning and come up with that. Improved a bit since, but can't work out where to put the Metallic action file or how to use it, so I'm making do with tweaking existing filters on Eye Candy. Any pointers on that front?
My best effort attached.
To load the action, it's this menu item under the 'hamburger' icon on the actions tab. I don't think it actually makes a difference where you have the action file saved, but I've saved it in User>AppData>Roaming>Adobe>Photoshop>Presets>Actions, which is the default folder when loading an action. Then to start the action, scroll to Metallic New (the one below the folder icon) which will allow you to press the triangle play button.
Finally got this to work on Photoshop 6 with Eye Candy 7 install on my MAC just wanted to ask for some tips in how to make these look better, also how do you guys make the Left Side & Right Side logos that's always puzzled me for some reason and would love to know how to make them
Assuming, how could be the configuration of the metallic effect in this image?
Didn't know where else to ask this. Can you create Metallic logos using GIMP?
Don't think so. The effect is made with eye candy 5 or 7 and I think it only works with Photoshop.
Ok thanks. So I would need Eye Candy & Photoshop?
@Qvordrup, Can you update the link for "Metallic New.atn", please? I need it for "eye candy 7".
The link is working for me?
Please try it again, it just takes a couple of sec. for the download window to open.
