Does anyone know an easier method for making bump maps from images. The pic is an example of what I'd like to accomplish given an item, a quarter in this example. Coins, fingerprints, animal skin, or even a cloth closeup...

All of my attempts with image filters end up just accentuating shadows instead of accurate bump maps. When i try to trace heights and topography by hand, it takes my amateur skill set way too long to do any meaningful detail.

Suggestions?

Make them yourself or bake them. Trying to make normal/displacement maps from images rarely work well.

I tried making them... but my 2d experience (or lack of) is my biggest hurdle. I have made some displacement maps for landscapes and such, but actual detail is just not my thing...

For smaller items in a large scene I'd use them as bump maps... but for objects that will be closer in flybys will need to be displaced (or actually modeled >eekk <)
