bump map for coral?


I would like to make this ‘coral’ with a bumpmap, but I don’t see how to improve the creases exactly where the bump map draws them. If I let a sphere, the creases need to be bigger. If I select “texture” in the 3d view, I only see the color but not the bump effect.
Can it be done with bump map?


can you upload file!
the bumps re big here so may have to use a displacement map

and this this in bl ?

happy bl

Thanks Ricky for the answer, the file contains only what is on the image: a normal map made with the cloud image, with the size and depth. The mesh is just a uv sphere, with Smooth.

edit: ok I have seen the displace modifier, I will do some tests…
