Hour 17. Adding Type to Pictures > Creating Bevel and Emboss Effects

Creating Bevel and Emboss Effects

These two tools are found in the Layer Style box. Both produce raised type: Bevel affects the edges of the type, producing a raised, but flat, letter surface; whereas Emboss gives the appearance of curved or rounded letters. Figure 17.21 shows examples of both. I added a little noise to the beveled “stone” with the Noise filter, and applied some Plastic Wrap to the embossing for more highlights.

Figure 17.21. The difference is obvious.
