InDesign CC - Special Effects to Objects


InDesign allows you to add a whole range of effects to objects in your document. For this example, we will look at some text effects such as Bevel and Emboss.

Remember that you however cannot apply effects to individual letters in the text but only to the entire text frame.

Apply Effects

In this example, we see that the Bevel and Emboss function creates a beveling effect to the text. Like any other effect, you can adjust the intensity, angle, offset, and other parameters.

You can play around with some of the other effects such as Inner Shadow, Inner Glow, Outer Glow, etc. to create just the right effect to the objects in your document.

You can also apply multiple effects to the same object.
