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

Creating Bevel and Emboss Effects

These two effects are found in the Layer Style dialog box. Both produce raised type—Bevel affects the edges of the type, producing a raised, but flat, letter surface; 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 Add Noise filter. Perhaps, with all that gooey jam, I should have carved a scone instead?

Figure 17.21. The difference between Bevel and Emboss is obvious.
