Can a plugin be made to alter the emboss effect? I know nothing about creating plugins

so please forgive me if this is a stupid question.

I'd like to be able to emboss only active pixels on a layer instead of embossing the entire layer.

Think of it in the same way that the feather plugin seeks out areas of transparency.

Could the emboss effect do the same thing?

Emboss only areas where there is no transparency?

This would be very helpful for creating texture on specific parts of an image only.

I would have asked this in the pluging forum, but I think that's reserved for plugin publishing only.

Thank you.

Well duh Hellfire! That worked like a charm.

I never thought about selecting an image before I embossed it.

I've been doing that for blurs, but it never occurred to me to do that with any other effect. I bet it works for the other effects like noise and clouds too.

Thanks a bunch! :D
