Emboss & Bevel

  • Full Emboss: Gives the object a 3D look and makes it appear to be raised or recessed from the background.
  • Outer Bevel: Does not affect the object itself but applies highlights and shadows to the background around the perimeter of the object to make it appear as though it is raised or recessed from the background.
  • Inner Bevel: Gives the object a 3D look and applies highlights and shadows on the object to make it appear 3D. Depending on how the lighting is used, the object can look raised or recessed from the background.
