Emboss Image in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how you can emboss an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
We can create a new document or open an existing one. In this video, there is an image that has already been opened. There is another VisiHow video on how to do that.
We must check if we selected the layer that we will be working with at the right-hand side.
We move our mouse cursor to "Stylize".
We go across and click "Emboss...". The effect will automatically make the image look like a stamp with raised parts or an embossed piece of paper.
We can click and drag the preview image to see what different areas look like.
We can zoom out by clicking the minus.
We can zoom in by clicking the plus.
We can change the angle of lighting. At the moment it is at 135 degrees. We can click the wheel to see how the image looks from a different angle. It can be quite interesting. We can also type the value in the "Angle" input field instead.
We can move the scroller to change the "Height" value. We can move the scroller back to make the height lower. We can just type the number in the "Height" input field.
We can also select the "Amount" value. The default is "100 %". We may prefer even more than that. We can click and drag the scroller to make the value less. We can just type the number in the "Amount" input field. It is really worth experimenting, because, as we can see, it has some nice effects.
We can click "Cancel" to go back and not add anything.
We click "OK" to apply the effect to the canvas.
This is a VisiHow video. We've just shown you how you can emboss an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to add them to the section below. We'll do our best to get back to you.
