Tin, do you want a separate thread for our images, or add them here?

What kind of images are you asking about?
Do you mean BRL effect images?
You can start a new thread if you like unless it's questions or whatever related to BRL for beginners then here is fine.

OMG I think I understand the problem now. I tried using one of your EMAPS on the text and it worked fine, I guess i'm not understanding how to create an EMAP :oops: . Maybe i'll stick with the many many that have been created already lol.

Were you using an e-map or a gradient?
If it was an e-map,
can you post it?
If it was a gradient can you tell us what gradient it was,
or perhaps post the gradient as well?

It was a photo I mapped to object with a transparent background. But i'm guessing there is more to creating an EMAP than that?

I used the e-map you uploaded as it was and this is my results.

I also tuned off all layers visibility,
just to see what would happen.
Bevel Reflect ran as normal, with or without any layer being visible.

I then Autocropped the crazy-pink e-map and ran it again.

nice emap Nancy, I'm a big fan of pink.
I asked "how to" at Gimp Chat and got some helpful suggestions http://gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=15255
for me, a very satisfying use of my Gimp time.

I increased the contrast and brightness of your Water cliff emap and also cropped it,
closer to the actual size of the sphere.

When using BRL on text.
Once you've positioned the text exactly where you like it.
It's always a good idea to do a Text to Path on the text layer.
This way, if you need to clean up any rough edges of the text.
The paths can be used for clean-up
After the BRL has been run.

Nancy - Point 4 in my post referenced emaps with additional transparent borders and I thought that would be your problem. However, such emaps themselves are valid and can be used to overlay their result on another outcome as a highlight; I use that approach often.

Also I do like both the emaps you/Wallace have posted and I will have a play with them today.
