Now let’s see the settings of the bevel and emboss

Since we are familiar with "styles" and "method", we will know their effects after trying. Here we will focus on explaining other attributes.
1. Depth and size
- Depth: control the top of the emboss.
- Size: control the width of the emboss (take the outer edge as the starting point).
- Soften: control the turning degree of the corner.
And, a variation on that technique intersecting surfaces:
2. Angle and height
Angle: direction of light source
Height: angle irradiated by light
3. Gloss contour
Though it is also called contour, but it is "gloss contour" here. It is for controlling the overall light and shade.
Below you see three variations of gloss contour.
Open this graphic to see the other values required to generate these surfaces.
Postscript: these are all of the principles of Bevel and Contour. Other relevant parameters are easy to understand and you will know their usages after trying to adjust. Contour is highly directly and often results in influence after directly changing sizes of graphics, so it is necessary to adjust specific values to optimum at any time.
