Part of series: DE034 Design Elements 034 – Raised/Recessed Ovals Light
These bevels were developed to work with templates with light-to-medium backgrounds (use DE033 for medium-to-dark backgrounds). When used with photos underneath, you can use any background you like (although a plane white background makes the lower right-hand corner of the oval disappear). They are developed in 1/2" increments so that minimal manual sizing is necessary. This is important because consistently sized bevel depths create the best, professional results. There is only one download, which encourages you to easily select the appropriately sized bevels when developing your presentations. Therefore, the download is larger than most other PowerFrameworks downloads, so it may take a little extra time to complete the download.
The bevels can be used to show a recessed field or a raised field. They can also be used as design bevels. Place a photo under the bevel and you get a very finished, polished look (as in the series example). You can also use the recessed and raised bevels to illustrate emptiness and fill (as in the Chart of the Month for September 2008).
If you are using PowerPoint 2007, the bevels can be tinted, as you would tint a photograph. Review the tutorial for more tips on using and formatting these bevels.
