original mini-tutorial by dd from this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6194&start=40#p77694

dd wrote:
1 - create a new layer on top of the text layer, fill it with black
2 - go to your text layer and select > alpha to selection
3 - select > feather selection by 10
4 - go to the new layer and fill selection with white # now you have a height map on your new layer.
5 - apply emboss on the new layer
6 - go back to your text layer and alpha to selection again
7 - go to new layer, invert selection, erase selection
8 - set new layer to grain merge


Type your text on a new transparent layer.

1 - create a new layer on top of the text layer, fill it with black
2 - go to your text layer and select > alpha to selection
3 - select > feather selection by 15
4 - go to the new layer and fill selection with white # now you have a height map on your new layer.

Image

5 - apply emboss on the new layer (Filters -> Distorts -> Emboss)

Image

6 - go back to your text layer and alpha to selection again
7 - go to new layer, invert selection, erase selection (or alternatively, create a layermask from selection)
8 - set new layer to grain merge

Image



alternatively, use 'Colours' -> 'Colour To Alpha' and choose the grey with the colour-picker

Image

to show the result better i made the black text red

This is the type of basic tutorial I think I started with, then I added extra features and it grew and grew to a very complex script

interesting to know Graechan !

how comes in most scripts highlight and shadow are two seperated "layers" ?
highlight is always Mode: Screen
and shadow on Mode: Multiply ?

I like that they are on separate layers, so you can tweak them separately if you wish.

my thoughts exactly and you can use different contours on them too !

If you set the elevation on the emboss to exactly 30.2°, you won't need to do the "colour to alpha" on the gray, because at 30.2° the middle section becomes middle gray, and middle gray (#808080) is invisible in grain merge mode. x + 128 - 128 = x. (grain merge mode works by adding the colour values in the layers and substracting 128, or 0x80 from the result)
