PS Tutorial: Beveling

Author Comments

Basic tutorial on how to use the Bevel and Emboss effect on text to make it stand out more, and I hope that this will help out a few people that are beginners to making pics.

Also like to add that I tried to compress the file size as much as possible, it's probably large due to the fact that I did every single frame with a pic made in photoshop.

very good tutorial for beginers, . Now you should folow up with a full list of the ffects tutorial then move on to more advanced like filters and after that brushing and brush effects. I don't see why this has got a low rating. Oh yeah you need to add a back button incase they missed something.

very nice.

this is what a tutorial should be like. the topic was a good one, as the effect you were showing is ver popular, and many people would want to know how to do it.
also, the tut. was straight to the point, straight-forward and easy to understand and comprehend. all of the instructions were basic, and were backed up by sound examples. well done.
overall score: 7/10


The text that the instructions are written in is really hard to read. If your trying to teach someone something, maybe you should do it legibly?

I could read it just fine, sorry about that. I guess I will have to remember that for next time, and I will use Times New Roman so that it is a lot easier to use. Thanks for the advice.


a tutorial for an effect that has been an easy to use, self-explanatory part of photoshop for the past 3 years? priceless.

OCP-Lock responds:

A 23 year old dumbass n00b who has been with the site for over 3 and a half years and is still stuck at level 3 due to laziness and idiocy? Very priceless. Not everyone is a master flash maker, I just happen to be one of them. And you just so happen to be one of the stupidass dicks on NG.


As a tutorial, I'm pretty sure it could be useful to someone, but there's nothing really appealing to it. You should add animation, like making the cursor move to do the things, instead of just clicking to go to the next screen. You should also add a small music loop, that would fit the atmosphere. Not a big song, just a small loop that you can easily find on the audio portal, that would make your submission more enjoyable. The file size is pretty high too.

OCP-Lock responds:

I couldn't figure out how to lower the filesize, I tried all sorts of things. I am going to add music to the next one, as I got a lot of good feedback on this one. So I know what I can do to improve on it now, and you are one of the few people that told me what I could change to make it better. Thanks for the review, I will be sure to make the next one a lot better, and I will work on animating that one as well.
