In an ealier discussion Ron Bates wrote that he had substituted the chrome appearance with mirror....hmmm. how do I do that?

I am fairley new to Photoview 360 but regard myself experienced PW user.

I have used some time with Photoview now, but the chrome finish looks dull and boring.

 

Any help is wanted..

These look great and I'd also say you've got a great handle on things!  Re: chrome, I find that usually when I want to use chrome, it's b/c I want a metal to show high contrast in lights and the environment refelctions, as well as reflections of other objects in the scene.  I also want the reflections themselves to not be de-saturated at all (or maybe I want them "fully saturated" is a better way to put it).  In that case, I typically substitute the glass "mirror" appearance for chrome.  See the two images and compare...
