The Bas Relief filter uses the foreground and background colors to create a low-relief rendering of your picture. If you choose colors carefully, it can look like copper foil, hammered metal, or carved stone. It's best used on pictures that have contrasting textures, or a textured subject against a flat background. Figure 16.28 shows the result. Perhaps it could have worked better if I had separated the cat from the bedspread.
Use a dark background color for best results with the Bas Relief filter.
