Trying to create this effect (Cast Raised Text) in Paint.NET Discussion and Questions Posted September 14 14 hours ago, IHaveNoName said: I had a go with this and indeed I found the odd problem with Object Bevel which tended to break up some of the curved parts of the text. This is the best I could do in a 10 minute try using an appropriate font and mostly Drop Shadow and Object Bevel plus duplicating the font layer, darkening the lowest and slightly off-setting it. Not great but possibly on the right track. Tried the Emboss and Metallize plugin too and didn't like them much for this particular job. Apart from the duplicate layer (which does help) I get much the same as this, which is better. What font did you use BTW?
