Making glass buttons


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to upload it but I can't: The extension pdn is not allowed.

Zip the file and upload the zip.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Hi I need help on this part. I'm stock here!! I did exactly what it wrote but the color did'nt change a bit. :cry:

Can someone help me out by giving more detail instructions??


Pick the the Magic Wand tool (s) and select the bottom half of the layer (below the line). I used a tolerance level of 69. Once that is selected, hold the Ctrl key down and now select the line itself. While you have this portion selected, switch to the layer below this one (the one with the white gradient). With that layer selected, cut out the selection (ctrl+x). Uncheck the layer with the line so you can no longer see it.

Hello guys,

I found Paint.Net recently and downloaded the V3.10

It is a lot better than Paint, but a little difficult to adjust to the editing options.

I liked your tutorial, and I finally made my first button with a glassy look.

The script (.dll) code lab file for the second button didn't work. Can anyone help me? I downloaded it and placed it in the effects folder. I ran it but it says error, and none of the options you described worked.

But anyways I still have at least one way of making a button glassy.

I tried to replicate a few of the "web 2.0" buttons, so once learnt I can make a few myself. The blue button and the butterfly with the single white light are mine, but the others are the end result of other people's successful buttons.

Can anyone give me a tutorial on making other buttons?

I tried my best on the first two.
