Beveling and Embossing Text

2. Click the T from the Tool Bar as shown to the right to get in the typing mode. This will bring up a special tool bar for text..

Select the text color from the text tool bar by clicking the color square and selecting the color you would like.


4. Font type and Size

Select your font from the font panel and the size of the font in pixels

5. Type your letters you want in the font you want and the main color you want on your canvas. The fatter the text the better the bevel..

6. Find the text layer on your layers panel. If you can not find your layers panel, click the windows menu and select show layers.


Right click on the T layer, the layer with your text in it and select BLENDING OPTIONS. This will bring up a new panel that will allow us to bevel the text.


7. On the Layer Style panel check the box for bevel and emboss and highlight that line. You will see a panel that looks like the one below. Select the options you want for your text. If you arrange this panel where you can see your text also, you will be able to preview your selections as you go. When you have made the bevel you want, adjusting all the options to your needs, click ok.


8. Your image is beveled and ready to save or continue with editing.
