I am trying to reproduce a banner like the one pictured. I will admit I am a rookie with PS. This banner is used as a graphic for a transition wipe in a video switcher. I am able to create a flat banner, but can not figure out how to create the bevel in the center.

Hello and welcome to PSG.

The "bevel" effect is nothing more than a darker shade of the main color added to half the banner.

Create and select a new layer. Make a selection of half the banners width using the Rectangular Marquee Tool

Then fill the selection with the darker color. Hit Cmd/Cntrl + D to deselect.

IamSam,
Thank you for the instruction. I would have never guessed that is how it's done. So much for thinking I know PhotoShop. haha
Thanks
