Engraved in stone?

I have tried using Shaped Gradients to make the text from white to black or black to white but the result after a bump map is always bumping out. How do I reverse the direction? I have seen a Photoshop tutorial on how to do it and it is the difference of checking a box with that program.

Should have read more of your issue. May also need to apply Xach Lighting effect (delete the light layer) for drop shadow enhancements. :)

I used a Gradient: Transparent to Black (custom), Shaped (Angular) on the text, sharpened it a couple times, then Bump Mapped it to the Slate background, added a Script-Fu Shadow Xach-Effect to darken the text with the highlight.
Maybe I have been staring at it for too long but it looks like it is going out still.

Put the White text in the black field with a white background.
Give it a Gaussian Blur.
Bump map a new Slate layer.
Use a duplicate text layer to add a Script-Fu Xach-Effect highlight at X=0 Y=0 with opacity at 50.
