This Adobe Fireworks tutorial will teach us on how to create an inset text effect as shown in the picture below.
First and foremost let us create a background of radial fill as shown below.
Next Type in your text
As we know that when a text is inset or imprinted, it surely will be a little darker in color than the surface. So I have given a linear fill to the text as shown below with darker shades of the surface color
For the finishing touch I gave an inner shadow effect
And finally drop shadow
Now you are through with this tutorial and Isn't it simple to create this smart inset effect :)
