Hey, how is this edge with a depth made?
That gray seems a level below the main texture without being to much.

I've tried bevel,stroke...it becomes to hard and not subtle.





btw,I can't make a rounded(feather) edge without it becoming blurry when I fill it(uncheching anti aliasing doesn't work) Round edges get's blurry while 90* straight don't.

it looks like it was beveled sligtly (low range) and then it had a texture set on darken above it.

So 2 layers on top of eachother? 1x with a black colour set on low bevel and 1x with a texture on top with layer style darken?

I can't get the shape to be crisp edges though,I need it to be feather 1...but then it becomes blurry.

Ok. Thanks.
Yeah but nothing works.

The instant I fill an box that has rounded edges it's not sharp like a rectangular square.
The more rounded edged box,the blurrier.

The selection itself is clear so I don't understand why it doesn't just fill it alle the way to the edges with no smoothness

But the purpose of a feather is not to change a shape per se, but to do exactly what you are seeing, soften the edge and do a kind of gradient. If yo want a rounded edged rectangle, use the shape tool like Zeealex did. Not entirely certain I understand what you need to know.

i DON'T want a smooth edge,I want a clear. The shape tool gives me that clear edge but I don't have the same freedom to make a selection like the rectangular tool.adding and substraction selections.
Filling it always makes it a smooth edge. I guess there's no way of making a rectangular selection with round edges then.
I guess this is where the pen tool comes in handy (which I don't know how to use;P)

I'm gonna re-skin that skin. How would you make that shape which is light grey?

why don't you try to double your layer and gaussian blur as tiny as you wish the layer under the fine edges, and it will tiny soften your edges.

Or try a mask and feather under the mask tool, see what you can have as different results. Hope it helps or maybe I got all wrong !

Cheers

I want a rectangular shape with round corners and sharp edges (not snooth)

What I really need is to cut out the shape I want and fill it.

Hi Composer

Tried something, and this is what i got so far

interface.jpg

after blurring a bit the image as other members have done before, just created a selection 1-2 px smaller than all your shape size, then duplicated the layer and lastly applied sharpen unsharp mask until get a desired semi sharp edges.

Also attached .PSD file as reference.

Hope this helps
