Chrome is a yellowish colored monochrome filter. It has five sliders which can be used to perform the functions that you logically assumed when looking at their labels:


Overexpose Sets an amount of overexposure. This goes over the top when reaching 255
Underexpose Sets an amount of underexposure.
Chrome - Silver Sets the amount of grayscale as opposed to "yellowscale". The grayscale applied is not the same as a regular grayscale conversion.
Lighten Increases the colorinformation with the used value. (same as a positive "brightness" value)
Darken Decreases the colorinformation with the used value. (same as a negative "brightness" value)


Overexposure and Underexposure can be combined to perform an "Increas Chromage"-like function. raising both with the same value results in the Chrome saturation being raised slightly. I included the last two because there are a lot of filters without built in brightness/contrast/gamma function. as I don't know how to do contrast and gamma correction yet, this'll do for now. more to come in the future though.
