I am not an expert on adobe photoshop so please excuse the dumb questions.
I am looking at this style which I have downloaded and have working (more or less) http://ebin.wordpress.com/2007/06/23/free-brushed-metal-photoshop-style/
I would like to make some icons which simply indent a simple picture or text in the centre similar to the word LOGO in the above example.
I have seen that some tutorials make two idential layers. Then cut the shape or text into both layers. They then move the bottom layer one or two pixels down and to the left to give it extra depth.
This is what I would like to do with the above style, but you can see (at least I could see the join between the two layers when I use the above style. I think this is because of the bevel but I am not sure.
The indent should be transparent and have a nice shadow inside to further give the impression of depth, but obviously I do not want this to apply to the outside edge of my image.
Could someone please guide me on how to do this. If you would like me to supply a .psd which you could play with just let me know.
Thank you in advance
