    Hello
    how do i take a part from a picture
    and make the part which already gold, embossing gold.
    so in the print it becomes remarkable gold
    like they are doing in the offset print in the printing press ?
    i know that i must have a special mold for it which won't be able to be in
    homely printer. but nevertheless i heard sometime that there is an option such as Sponge Tool and Burn Tool there is something that could make the job in some way.
    i will be glad for suggestions
    10x and have a good day :)

    This is your second post on this. Try to find an example, this will help a lot. I don't think the beginners section is even the place to ask this as most beginners don't professionally print their images let alone emboss gold.

    I'm not even quite sure what you're asking. You're asking if there's any way to emboss gold onto a picture?

    Depending on the size, you can get one of those notary embossers that you press using your hand.

    don't get impatient. You're not being totally clear. Are you on this forum for the soul purpose of finding this answer or are you a photographer? Try yahoo answers...

    Hand paint it.

    I believe I understand what they want.
    The only way I know to do-it-yourself is to do it by hand.

    If you truely mean gold embossing, then you are wanting gold foil on part of your photo. There are gold embossing kits. You apply glue, then gold foil, then wipe off the excess foil. However a pro printshop does this differently and more efficiently and cheaper. I don't understand how you think a photoshop tool can apply gold on top of a final print. But when you mention the burn tool in photoshop, it will darken/saturate colors and the dodge tool lightens them.

    The option is in the embossing kit. That's where you apply the glue, then foil and you wipe off all the excess glue. Just take it to a print shop.

    man this is hard to understand...lol...it must be early.

    eliqush...are you looking for a gold embossed EFFECT? or are you looking for true metallic raised portions of a physical print?

    your posting seems to imply that you are looking to do this in the SOFTWARE.

    can you clarify?
