    I thought the emboss feature was the one you used to make text and other things look like a "shiny button". Most widgets have this look and I would like mine to also.

    Any suggestions?

    Just do a search for "Aqua buttons". There are lots of online tutorials available.

    It's not necissarily a feature you can just make with a filter. It's actually done using different layers and gradients. Tutorials are your best bet.

    Is Bevel close to what I'm looking for? I know I used to be able to give a layer an impression of being "raised"....

    I was just working on a website and found this in one folder by accident...

    I dont really remember what project it was from, but you can use it to turn the layers on an off to see what they are.

    bevel and emboss

    mess around with the size and depth layers to raise your surface. otherwise the aqua button tutorial works great too.
