Text Effects of Engraving on Metal Plate in Photoshop 2023

The effect of the Engraved-style on woodcut and metal plates can be easily created by the brightness of the texture as the background. This is based on the visual illusion caused by the shadow, the point is to add shadows to the incident angle of light.

Gips strategy: Elevation change by shadow!
The effects of dimples and bulges work on much the same principle. From a visual psychology point of view, up light and down shadow looks bulge. To reverse the 3D visual illusion like this, set the dimpled surface slightly darker. This makes it possible to recognize the sense of distance from the bulge surface.
