* Duplicate your layer.
* Run Add Bevel and choose the "Keep Bump Layer" option.
* After the script finishes, delete the beveled layer (we just want
the "Bumpmap" layer).
* Open the "Filters->Map->Bump Map" dialog and select the "Bumpmap"
layer from the top dropdown list, select "Spherical" from the Map Type
dropdown, and adjust the "Azimuth" to control the direction of the
light source. To mimic the Add Bevel script, the other options should
remain at their default settings: Compensate for darkening=TRUE,
Invert bumpmap=FALSE, Tile bumpmap=FALSE, Elevation=45, Depth=3, and
everything else "0".
