The Emboss Effect
The Emboss effect is exactly like the Color Emboss effect,
but returns only grayscale results. To get this result in color,
you'll need to add it to the top copy of a layer's duplicate,
and then blend it in using one of the overlay blend modes
(e.g. Overlay, Soft Light, Pin Light, etc.). The settings in the
Emboss effect are identical to those in the Color Emboss effect
(Fig. 17.22 ).
