How to Bevel More than 50 Pixels

Recommended Posts

I've gotten the bevel plugin (which is awesome) and I'm trying to figure out how to bevel something more than 50 pixels high. If I try to make a mountain, for example, and make a very larget, flat surface and bevel it I end up with a pretty-looking plateau.

I've used the magic wand to select the top of the plateau and thenS bevel again, which actualy works well except it leaves a ring around the consecutive bevels (see attached image).

So does anyone know how to bevel more than 50 pixels or how to eliminate this ring effect?

Here's an example using a desired bevel of 200. (4 times 50)

Make the selection that you want to bevel.

Make a new layer, fill the selection with black.

Ctrl A, to select all of the layer.

Use the Move Selected Pixels tool on the lower-right

adjusting node while holding down the Shift key.

Move the node up and to the left until the X and Y

dimensions are one quarter of the canvas dimensions.

Magic Wand the black, make a new layer, run Bevel Selection at 50.

Make a rectangular selection of 1/4 canvas dimensions in that corner around the bevel.

Use the Move Selected Pixels tool to expand the selection to full canvas size.
