Lots of tutorials on making buttons, can you give a link to the one you used..


Most use a bumpmap Filters -> Map -> BumpMap somewhere in the procedure, using a
black/grey/white image as a bumpmap.

example 1

To reverse the effect, the basic way is invert the colours of the bumpmap image.
Colors -> Invert

example 2

Easier than that, tick the 'Invert bumpmap button in the dialogue.
