Chapter 12. Working with Layer Styles > Working with Contour and Texture

Working with Contour and Texture

The Bevel and Emboss layer styles have two powerful features, the ability to add a contour or texture to the active bevel or emboss. This lets you give your creative elements more of a realistic texture. When you apply the Contour and Texture options, the image takes on a three-dimensional texture, based on a selected pattern. Once applied, the relative depth and intensity of the texture can be precisely controlled to create rough rock-like surfaces, as well as brush metal. In addition, the Contour option lets you shape the appearance of the shadow areas of the texture style, creating even more realistic surfaces.
