I've been playing with Redfield Plugin's iEmboss and I just love it. There are so many things you can do with this filter that I found it hard to narrow it down to ten examples. With the random dice feature and a multitude of sliders you can create some really amazing images.
Example 1 - There's embossing of course !
Example 2 - By Combining textures you can create wonderful arty effects including sketch like images
Example 3 - Change the saturation for interesting photo effects
Example 4 - Merge the iEmbossed image with your original image to create an endless array of effects (including glass like effects)
Example 5 - Create original portraits including charcoal like sketches
Example 6 - This sig tag was created by changing the hue and then taking it into an animation program
Example 7 - Combine textures to create awesome new ones
Example 8 - Create web backgrounds or borders for stationery, scrap pages and more using dingbats or fonts
Example 9 - Create line art images
Example 10 - Add your own textures and use them to create new ones
