Embossing Effect and Blends
We can add a photographic effect to your design that gives it a "metallic" appearance, with different shades of gold and silver, but it will only be available as a bitmap file, such as .JPG, .PNG, .TIF, etc. We can also create a vector file that has a similar appearance, although it won't have quite the same depth and color variations -- this is called a blend.
Images on the left are the underlying vector files with flat; Images on the right are the embossed and blended versions.
