    Bevel is how I would do it.

    Fill your text with the same wood image.

    Us the Photo Tool > Enhance tool to make the filled text a little darker

    Apply your bevel with the light coming from the bottom instead of the top.

    Just play around with it until you get it right.

    Thank you Gary for you reply.
    I'm not sure if it's a perspective matter, i'm seeing it embossed instead !?

    It might help if there is a darker layer of text with a linear transparency that makes top part of the letter a little darker.

    Visit this page of carved wood text images, find one you like then see if you can reproduce the effect. https://duckduckgo.com/?t=ffsb&q=Car...ages&ia=images

    I am trying but that is difficult to get the inside carve effect, all Xara tools make them embossed.

    Thank you for your time Gary i appreciate it !
