Isn't working

I know how to emboss an image in Photoshop but can't figure out where to do it in Fireworks8.

The select image - Property/inspector/ filter/Bevel Emboss / Raised Emboss doesn't have any effect on the image.

I searched the internet and can't find info on it anywhere.

Is this not possible in FW8?

I want to add some info to my earlier post:

I'm using an image of a rosebud with the background removed because I want to use it as a background tile.

The select image - Property/inspector/ filter/Bevel Emboss / Raised Emboss only embosses the edge of the image and not the whole image.

I posted a message in the adobe forum and they said it was likely a bug in the program (it doesn't work on my Main computer or my Laptop--newly installed on the later). However the email to report a bug on Adobe bounced so I can't report it there either so I hope someone has an idea on how to work around this.

Should definitely be possible - cut the image out using the selection tools - select the image (bitmap layer) >> effects >> bevel & emboss >> outer bevel ....

If that doesn't work they might be something wrong with that tools config - a re-install would probably fix it, as a last resort.

I did a reinstall and did as you suggested above and it treats it like text. Only embosses the edges just like before.

I'm using a gif image with transparent background.

Are you sure this is supposed to work on Fireworks 8?

PS. I also have Fireworks 8 on my laptop and the same thing occurs there so I doubt it's a problem with my software.

PS2. I tried another gif image with background removed with the same results.

I just downloaded a trial version of Fireworks CSE and it won't emboss an image either--only the edges.

You could download Gimp and use that if you have not other paint program options.

Thanks but I'm trying to set up a Tutorial on how to do this in Fireworks-- I thought there was another way to make an embossed image in Fireworks.

Im not sure about fireworks but in photoshop you would have to first convert the gif from indexed color mode to RGB, maybe that would help.
