Before starting, note that I will be using Macromedia Fireworks MX 2004 and results of this tutorial may differ with other versions. This tutorial is very simple yet shows a great effect.

Also, I will first show you the result of my tutorial, so you can understand the nature and difficulty of this tutorial.
Attached Image
I have used DIC's header and implemented the name into the background.
  • To begin, we first paste an image on the canvas so in this case, the DIC header.

  • We then type in text, so we type in </>. I have used ORC A Extended which should be included in all Fireworks and Windows.

  • Then with the text selected, go to the Properties window below the screen, select Effects --> Bevel and Emboss --> Raised Emboss.

  • For the text, the properties are as followed:
    • Width - 2
    • Contrast - 100%
    • Softness - 0
    • Angle - 30
    • Show Object - Unchecked

And now the result should be the same as mine. :D
