Glossy Button Video Tutorial and PSD

Hey there everyone – I have been quite busy and havent had much time to be creative.. I hope no one suspected that I gave up my blog. Anyways, in this tutorial I will teach you how to create/design a nice sleek glossy button  using PHOTOSHOP!! The final image will look something like this:

Why do I say “something like this” That is because in this tutorial I use a different font and dont do the gradient in the background. To view the video tutorial you can go by clicking here.  And when you are done, feel free to go here and pick up the PSD with layers intact. 

P.S. I have to say that I think the colors in the video came out a little too bright which was not my intention …sorry guys.


  1. I don’t actually understand how how this is much different between the Daily News printing this or some internet blog. Content like this must to be administered out more to the public. I wish that someone else in the USA would want to take a stance like this.

  2. Hi I could have sworn Ive been to this website before but after checking through some of the post I realized its new to me Nonetheless Im definitely delighted I found it and Ill be book-marking and checking back often

  3. Great! I’ve been wanting to learn this for a long time. The video is a nice touch. The a/v went out of sync somewhere past halfway. But it worked for me. Thumbs up.

  15. I’ve to say wonderful tutorial.

    I’ve searched for such thing for a week. I found several txt tutorial but in everything I got lost at some point because of bad descriptions or jumps in procedures.

    I think video tutorial are the best for PS newbie.

    Wonderful to have a mov version.

  17. I love video tutorials. This one lost me as designer was like a Hammy from over the hedge, high on sugar or something… Jumping from button to button without explaining what is doing? Last time I was this high, wife made me lap water out of the backyard ditch. Slow down… Take time to explain well your moves if you can please. You are too smart.

  18. It actually has nothing to do with quality, but rather usability. I’ve bookmarked a couple of your tutorials for use at work, and refer to them often.

    I’m trying to get to the point where I can use Photoshop without referring to a tutorial as much, but when I do need to, it’s nice to be able to take a quick look instead of having the video (which I can’t really sit and watch in my work environment anyway).

  19. The Grubesteak, I hear what you are saying
    I plan on still doing step by step written
    tuts also. Although you should know that
    the quality of this video tutorial is much
    higher than the last two…and much easier
    to follow. I hope you all enjoy.
    Feedback is good! Thanks
