Modify the Outer Bevel Filter

The color of the outer bevel filter is red. You may change it if you prefer. Try a turquoise color (#3399CC). Experiment with the settings. For a more subtle effect, change the width from 10 to 5. Try out different types of effects. It is currently set to "Raised" — try "Inverted" or "Highlighted" for a different look. Try changing the contrast, softness, and angle if you feel daring.
