Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong? This is what I get when I apply Emboss (from the Effects - Stylize menu), set at default 0 angle. Actualy, all angle options on the dial result in this.

Since I can't find a way to delete this post, I want to mention that I think I figured it out. I needed to go through the curves step. Also, in order to exclude the background, I had to use the magic wand. I still need more practice with the magic wand, but I think I'm beginning to see how it's often used in creations such as this.
