Logo embossed in a metal sheet

In this tutorial we’ll create an effect of a logo embossed in a metal sheet. Start by creating a gradient background. We used green to white to green.

In channel panel create a new alpha channel. Click on second icon from bottom right to create a new channel. this new channel is named alpha 1 by default.

Using custom shape tool (U) create a shape of tiger’s paw in white color.

Create a circle thin frame shape surrounding the tiger’s paw.

Type pugmarks below the shape with a nice font.

Now switch to layers panel. Select filter>>render>>lighting effects. ( if you see lighting effects disabled, you are proabably working in CMYK mode. Switch to RGB mode to work with render effects).

In render effect panel select alpha 1 from texture channel field at the bottom.

This will show the design you created in alpha 1 channel in an embossed pattern. Adjust height setting at the bottom of the window. This setting adjust the depth of design. We used 44. Click ok to apply the settings.

Our pugmarks logo is ready, showing effect as if it is embossed on back of a metal sheet.
