How can I make this bevel and emboss effect look deeper
I am trying to design an image which looks like this:
But I ended up with the following image: (edited image)
I tried adding layer styles as in the below image (Edited image).
How can I make the second image look deeper, like the first does?
Edited one :
with this new bevel settings
I think the key is that you're doing the Bevel and Emboss a little bit backwards.
To replicate that image, I would instead apply the Bevel and Emboss to a wood panel that has the area "punched out":
We still need something for the backdrop, so I duplicated the original layer and offset it by a few pixels down and to the right (this will help with the depth effect in the finished product)
To the top layer, I will apply the Bevel and Emboss (using these settings)
We're still not fully there, the original image has a lot more depth. There are two final touches to make. The first is to add a drop shadow to the top layer to really bring it out (I used these settings):
The final touch is to darken the bottom/background layer. I used an adjustment layer, but there are of course many ways to do that. Here's what the finished product looks like:
Change settings of the bevel effect (do not forget its colors' blend mode.) also change the brightness of the wooden texture layer.
