Hi Jim,

I think what you stumbled into was the inverted
bumpmap. when you make a for the letters to be bumped
up into the above layer, you can reverse this so that
the letters seem to be pressed into the above picture.
that might be the look your looking for. if so, in the
bumpmap dialog box click the invert option.
