This week I’m going to do a request for a tutorial we got via our website, PixelmatorTutorials.net. I’m going to show you how you can create an inset text effect. Others might call this a letterpress effect. The effect you get from a letterpress printer. Big parts of this tutorial are based on a photoshop tutorial from Jacob Gube on sixrevisions.com
Although Pixelmator doesn’t have a set of automated layereffects tools, you can create a number of such effects using the tools you do have without too much difficulty. In this project you will create four effects: Drop Shadow, Outer Glow, Inner Glow, and Bevel and Emboss.
