View Bump Mapping

Bump Mapping is a rendering effect that makes an otherwise smooth surface appear to have an actual texture.  Typically, gray scale maps are painted or generated (often from photos), and then applied to the object with the texture toolset.  You can also create bumps with procedural shaders.  At render time, the effect becomes apparent.  You can see the effect in the viewport when you choose the Advanced Open GL option.
