    bevel effect

      With photoshop you can make a bevel effect also.


      My question is the following:


      What do you think is better, using PS to make a bevel effect or doing it manually?


      Various tutorials in the web teach how to make a good bevel manually.

          It rather depends on what I need to do, and the look that I wish to achieve. The Bevel has gotten better in PS, over several versions, but until recently, I usually used Extensis PhotoTools, or Alien Skin (both plug-ins), as they offered more control.


          Where the effect is more prominent, I will create the work manually, or even use Corel Painter. It just depends on what I need, and prominent a role it will play.


          For most uses, Bevel in PS is adequate.


          Good luck,

            Personally I like combining Layer Styles to make the very good looking effects they produce.
