Emboss With Gloss

Emboss With Gloss

In: Filters/Effects



Performs an Embossing effect with added gloss (specular reflection) on a color and height input. Essentially adds fake, baked lighting to an image based on height information. Useful for some texturing styles that require lighting baked into the textures.

For a version with more options, see Uber Emboss. There's also the simpler, atomic version of Emboss.
