Great tutorials just wish there was speech to accompany them. John

Granted that I am an imbecile, but I am stymied.   I have dutifully chugged back and forth between the layers in your much-appreciated file, pressed my nose against the computer screen to figure out the RGB settings for what should be gold, tried various and sundry settings of my own with pronounced lack of success, examined the lighting filter and discovered the ah ha! moment when the bump file goes in, etc.   Even found the very same bitmap image on the web, so that isn't the problem. Though I have now figured out the whole process, and can achieve gold text, my results look as though they have been buried in the ground for several hundred years while the metal has eroded into tiny pockets.  (Bevel/emboss didn't help, but I unfortunately did a screen shot and then tossed the file before I had a good look.)   How did you manage these beautiful golden letters?   I am also trying to create a Style for this, which doesn't appear to be possible.   Each time I think I have it, "Add to Selection" plonks a nice plain gold wheel into my style category.   Are the bitmap portions unable to be saved in a style?  After 3 days of trying, I am throwing myself at your mercy.   Help???

I'll rattle a tutorial off tomorrow as I have some spare time. But in the meantime...

This shows the underlying gradient.

Oh ho!  Thank you @firstdefence for the above.   I was using the history of your Gold.afphoto file and obviously missed the boat -- or at least the right layers. For starters, I must have used a lighting layer that you apparently discarded, because I was using the Type as Spot, and the Texture at 35.2.  Also Diffuse 100%, Specular 50%, Shininess 80%, Ambient 20%.  And needless to say, the Color block was blank.  Further, I had the lighting layer as a child of the Gold layer (again another screen shot).  Other than that, I can't think of much else I could do to gum up the works.  Anyway, I am making a screen shot of your post, and will try again.  It is so kind of you to help me with this!!

Can the finished product be used as a Style?
