It works even better with less rectangular things, btw.

Lovely tutorial, and quite a clever way of getting to the end result, however when in the last step you say "adjust as shown here"... nothing is "shown here". Admittedly, it's not really needed, as people can probably do the final step themselves in one way or another, but still...

Look at the right side of the image, at the layer window. The settings are written on the layer names...

but good point, I'll add something so people know where to look. :)

e. How's this? (see image)

Oops, sorry for not seeing that. That's much better. :)

All in all, the technique is quite good! I'm sure it would, as you said, work better on more rounded shapes.

To anyone who might wonder...

If like u wanna make urself chrome ( like making urself like terminator or something ) u can treshold to make urself a single color. Imo that should be mentioned, or maybe even added in tut.
