Steps

  1. 1
    In our example, we've already opened Photoshop, and we have some video open as well.

    The video clips are shown at the bottom of the screen on the timeline.

    The first clip is purple because it has been converted to a smart object.
    That basically flattens the video clip, so it is treated as one frame rather than lots of individual frames. This is vital for using filters with video on Photoshop. Refer to other videos on this website to find out how to convert a video to a smart object.

    This changes the image quite dramatically.
    Emboss gives the image a slightly raised appearance, just as it would on physical paper. On physical paper, it would actually push the image out of the paper.

    We can experiment with this quite a lot, such as zooming out with the minus sign.
    This will allow us to get a better view of the overall image.

    We can also zoom in with the plus sign to see more detail.

  11. 11
    Change the "Angle" by clicking and dragging on the circular dial.
    This chooses the angle where the light is coming from.

    We can change the "Height" by clicking and dragging along the scroll bar.

    Lowering the "Height" significantly allows the image to become a bit more subtle.
    This makes it look even more like it is being pushed out on the paper.

    When we increase the "Height", it changes to a more layered look.

  15. 15
    We can also type in a number for "Height".

    Next, we can edit the "Amount" in the same way, by clicking and dragging along the scroll bar.

    Just as with "Height", the less intense the "Amount", the more subtle the image will be.

    Increasing the "Amount" will give a much stronger effect.

    We can also just change the number next to "Amount" as well.

    Then we simply press "OK" to apply the changes to the video clip.

    We can hide those filters by clicking on the eye, either for the "Smart Filters" generally or specifically for the "Emboss" one if that's the only one we want to hide.
