I am working on sending a proof to someone for a project and have my file in vector for manufacturing. I also have it in jpeg format and would like to be able to create an effect like this one shows. Can anyone point me in the right direction? It seems the gold outline looks raised and the colors of the pin are sunken in to provide a 3-D effect.
I am also curious how to "mirror" the image and fill with a solid color to create the backside markings. I have done this in the past in Corel but am somewhat new to PS.
The image below is the image I am working with where the black would be raised and the red, white, blue would have the "sunken" appearance
With the image all rasterized in pixels, you'll have to do it a bit differently than if you had it in vector shapes in several layers.
Just one possible way to get there from here:
Here's the PSD file if you'd like to look at the individual layers:
Thanks for the tip, like you said with an object being rasterized it doesnt look the best. I am playing around in Illustrator with it now. I could always rasterize the final outcome like they did on that proof of the guy playing guitar
Noel - thanks for the help. I am trying your suggestion on and it seems to be giving me the desired effect, but the layer is greyish/silver instead of black. i cant figure out how to change this, have i missed a step? Also there is not a place for me to upload the PSD file to to show what is happening
Here is an example of the layer providing effect I wanted, but in a different color
I believe the original file is still there
