Thanks so much for this Nathan! It's really beautiful and I was curious how you made it so shiny! It really does look like gold! Haha I'm really excited about it. Our next assignment for my Photoshop class is to find a short tutorial and teach it to the class, and I think everyone will really love this.

I like how you encourage us to mess around with different settings in your tut. I always feel like I need to follow the tut exactly but this one is fun to play with. For the Bevel/Emboss Highlight Mode I think my fave is Color Dodge; it makes the color a bit more intense. Also Difference is way cool and gives it a purple edge in some places!

Also for anyone wondering about which #s the gradient colors are these are them (pretty close anyways, I think) from left to right.

I took a screencap and used the eyedropper tool in Photoshop to see which ones they were. I hope it's close, but mine looks pretty awesome. Thanks Nathan!

That's wonderful, Chelsea. I'm glad you found it helpful. Here, go have a careful look at my Photoshop workshop page - I have to do a 3 hour presentation tomorrow. You'll find some of this very helpful, too!

Have a wonderful evening, my friend.

This is perfect for my needs. I will be creating a wedding book for friends soon and this is just the sort of embellishing that I was needing to adorn their pages with. Thanks so much!

I'm glad you found the tutorial useful. If you try creating different gradients, you can get a metallic effect on things using all different colors. It's quite fun.

Have a wonderful day.

Hmm, do you know how this could be done in the Elements version of Photoshop?

Elements looks a teeny bit different... :hmm:

By the why you gallery has blown me away... I can't think of anything else to write on them! :faint:

Hi!

A lot of it can be done, I know, because others have reported to me that they've been able to. As to how, I haven't used Elements for such a long time, I couldn't tell you exactly. My apologies.

Ah ha! Instead of being a dork and asking you how you DO what you do, I will look at this instead and save myself the shame! ^_^ I had 44 of your pieces downloaded for my desktop. You're always on my desktop. But then we got a high res monitor and I have to go re-download them all again. Ah, me. ^_^

Interesting. I do not think all of these options are available in the version of Photoshop I'm stuck with. :shakefist: I'll experiment and see if there's another way I can apply the concept and maybe I'll come up with something useful!
