Make a copy of the bezel image that is all black except for the 100% transparent parts (i.e. the "hole" in middle) and add it to the artwork one layer down from your actual bezel. Now use the alpha setting on the bezel to adjust the "brightness". You're still making it transparent but because there's a black mask underneath, you can't see through it. It should look like this (except I can't figure out how to make greater-than signs that don't get interpreted as html):

{bezel element="black-bezel"}
{bounds x="0" y="1384" width="4000" height="3561" /}
{bezel element="real-bezel"}
{bounds x="0" y="1384" width="4000" height="3561" /}{color alpha="0.75" /}
