I'm using Paint Shop Pro 9 and I would like some help onto how to make icons have more "depth". Not sure if that's the right word.

If I use just curves, it ends up making the whole icon darker in general, which isn't what I want.

Here are some examples under the cut (to hopefully make myself more clear).
