Stop, please. Don't tell me that Paint.NET already has this Effect. I know. But it can only do a very soft Engrave / Emboss. Not a masiv one. Let me explain it to you with pictures, please.
First one can be done with the build-in plugin. The others not.

You can get this and other plugins plus the source code from here

I can see myself using this plugin. Sometimes a DEEP emboss can be used to good effects. Used with something like Zoom Blur Delux on say squares you could make an array of blocks.

As for PhotoBucket I can't access it at work as they have blocked that domain. It's fun trying to follow some of the tutorials when I can't see the images they have used :|

Well, there a big problem with this! It is by no means a simple task.

And you know why? Because it depends of the theme you are using.

At my computer, with XP Standard theme, the window looks just fine.

I don't know what do you use. I will have to scale somehow the window depending of this.

I don't know, mabye allow it to be resizable to a certain extent? I thought it would be easy because it was a simple slip up when using Visual Studio's design tools :)

I use WinXP and the Zune theme downloaded from Microsoft, I'm like batman, I like black color :)

It's looks the same as all other builtin XP theme, only the dark colors.

And it has the same problem as Andrew D mentioned.

Same here with WindowBlinds 6. :(

...I like black color :)...

Same here too... :D

Hello Scot,

 

You may find the ideas in this video will help to get the effect you want.

Personally I find this effect difficult - I think it's an optical illusion - the text always appears to come forward for me.

I think the trick maybe to keep the effect subtle.

 

Good luck!
