Cool effect, how do you get it in ImageFX? Well, it was possible in versions below v3 as the culmination of a long list of actions, but layers makes it much easier to see the results immediately and to make changes non-destructively. The following assumes at least some experience with ImageFX 3+.
First, load the graphic you want to bevel.
You might try using some noise in Lighting or ReliefMap for some interesting effects.
Right after step 4 and 5.
Right after step 6.
Right after step 11.
Now you get to figure these out for yourself.
I've used Convolve/Relief Map and masks liberally in this image to get the weathered stone look, the bevel, and the lettering. Here is the final image, click on it to download the INGF file. It was made in ImageFX 3.3 but it should open in ImageFX 4. If you don't have an Amiga and ImageFX, you can't open this and you are missing out!
Here I've made the bevel curved by altering the Bevel layer -before- running "Relief" on it. Please note: you won't get a good bevel effect unless the background is somewhere in the mid tones. IE, a white or black background won't work well with a bevel.
And here is another effect, including a "bumpmap" on the corrosion as a separate layer. Load it up and turn the layers on and off to see their affect. I'm not especially happy with this one. If I were doing this for money, I'd find a background that looks more like corroded brass. Click to download an LHA of the ImageFX layered file, again you must have ImageFX 3 or later.
