I would like to implement a skills bar chart into a resume template. I am using Gimp for this project and am trying to find ways to implement this feature. Example below.
The simplest way to do this would be to do it as text/type: just use a row of slashes ( / ) or vertical lines ( | ), probably in bold, and then just change the color of the type for how high you would rank yourself in those skills.
EDIT: I am not really familiar with GIMP, but depending on its type capabilities, you can play around with how the type looks by adjusting kerning, or adding a contour to the type to make it look even thicker than just bold.
IMHO, I would not do this kind of thing in GIMP in the first place, but rather use a proper DTP (desktop publishing) software like InDesign (which I understand is expensive) or Scribus (which is freeware, https://www.scribus.net/). Both of these have a bit of a learning curve, but in my opinion it's worth it.
